    Difficulty Level:
  • February 19, 2021 First Classical 50 Pieces for Piano

    Great for Beginners (Intermediate Level Players would probably find the simplified arrangements too easy) ; large notes and short pages make things less intimidating for Beginners

  • January 01, 2021 Great collection but simplified too much!

    As a piano teacher, I was hoping for arrangement of famous classical solos I could teach my students. I was disappointed that songs were way too simplified and not the original versions and greatly shortened. Had I been able to review more than a couple of pages online I would...

    have realized this. I only found 3 titles I felt were useful out of the collection of 50. However, the music notes are big so beginners won't feel intimidated by so many notes.

    I have a number of Easy level classical books and I really like this one. The song choice is interesting. They simplify the pieces so you can immediately play them and it works. The book pointed me to pieces I didn't know about which was a plus.
