    I pull out the Christmas Hits (Level 1 & 2) every year to play at holiday time. Since I've gotten so much out of the Alfred's Adult series, I bought this to send to my sister, along with Alfred's Adult All-in-One Course - Level 1 (Book), now...

    that she's retired and returning to piano. I enjoyed supplementing the Alfred's Basic Adult Course with the Hits & Christmas Hits when I was at that point - getting back to playing, years after I'd taken lessons as a kid. I recommend the entire series. Although I've progressed and now study with a teacher, I still play from the Hits series and the Christmas Hits (Level 1 & 2) for fun. These are both fun to play, sound good & supplement the Basic Course.

    I love this book. I am an intermediate player at best. The arrangements in this book are easy to follow and they make me sound really good! They're fun to play and they are almost all songs that most everyone is familiar with! Great value!

  • 2010-12-15 00:00:00.0 Very enjoyable book - great hits

    This is a great collection of so many of the favorite popular secular Christmas songs. It's a shame that there are a couple reviews here that downgrade the collection because it's secular. Alfred's also has the classic religious-based Christmas songs in another similar collection. They use...

    the term "Hits" to differentiate the two, but just a look at the song list will make it clear. I like that there are varying degrees of difficulty to these songs. I would classify them as beginner to advanced beginner (Jingle Bell Rock is a little challenging, and a great arrangement). I often recommend this book to my students. Merry Christmas!

    The pieces are for a beginner but though not a beginner, I like playing them all the same since, they don't need practising like serious music and don't take time to master. Also, though very simply written, the music maintains the depth of Christmas songs.

    This is, in fact, a Christmas book. Much of the music is secular, but your favorite secular Christmas tunes are in here and easy to play.
