  • February 17, 2016 sturdy but dated

    These pieces are fine, but a bit "musty". There is much more appealing literature out there that covers the same bases--even collections of classical pieces. These might be good for an intermediate student to sight read, but even then, I have more targeted materials.

    Difficulty Level:
  • November 19, 2008 Audition

    Since I have my students going through yearly Guild Audition, I use the guild repertoire books mainly for guideline of difficulty. Each of my student has to play at least 1 or 2 pieces out of it, so I know, they play the level expected by the Guild ---which however...

    is different from the book's grade level. The (Guld Rep.requirement is in the Syllabus and is different.

  • February 08, 2008 Difficult music

    My son's piano teacher reccommended this book because I said my son was interested in participating in local recitals. It is definitely more challenging than his other books. He still likes most of the assignments, it just takes him longer to master each one. This book could be discouraging...

    for some, I'm sure.
