This unique collection contains 46 classical masterpieces from over 20 of the world's greatest composers. It eliminates the need for multiple teaching sources since all the most popular pieces are contained within one book. Arranged by Jonathon Robbins in the order of difficulty, the pieces work with a student, gradually increasing the level of difficulty as the student's ability progresses. Great care has gone into the layout, as a page turn is rarely necessary.

    Excellent selection of classical composers suitable for Levels 2 and 3. My students have played a number of pieces from this book in their piano recitals. If played correctly, they are challenging, yet attainable.
