    This is a very good book for young beginner "student recital" music. It's a fun way to introduce the classic melodies and themes - and the duets make the music even more inviting for students. I would recommend it.

  • September 29, 2009 Fantastic Book!

    This is a wonderful book to use for students that need time getting used to playing the piano without the incremental difficulty involved in regular method books. The duets are beautifully written and exciting for both student and teacher!

  • March 17, 2009 Fun for recital!

    This is a great book for beginning students. It gives them a chance to play familiar tunes at their level, and introduce them to classical styles. Many songs are "one note at a time" songs and are too easy for most of my students.
