  • September 07, 2020 Good collection

    I have owned this album of pieces for 30+ years and still enjoy it. It finally got where the binding was worn out despite my best efforts to tape it together so I finally bought a replacement. I just wish it was printed a little larger for older eyes.

    I had the original piano book since 1959. It was falling apart and I found the reproduction online. The only thing I don't like is that is doesn't stay open. I have to press at the binder and keep a clip at the top so it doesn't...

    Excellent. Have just gotten a piano after being without for about 30 years, and it's great to have this album again. My original one is deteriorating. I'm delighted that it is still available. And great service from your company.

    I received this book from my teacher when I was in the 4th grade and used it for several years. Some of my fondest memories of pieces I learned come from this book...Imagine how pleased I was to learn I could still get a copy for MY student that...

    I'm teaching now (35 years later!). Geared for the intermediate player, there is a good variety of song styles and challenges for the student willing to put in the time to learn the properly.

  • August 26, 2009 An Old Favorite, but Better Books are Available

    I had this book as a child. It is a wonderful collection of favorite piano pieces. It is a good value for the money. My only hangup with the book is that the pieces are heavily edited; one cannot really tell what the composer wrote vs. what Eckstein added in...

    his editing. I now use "Easy Piano Classics" by Walter and Carol Noona instead. That book has just as many pieces for the same price, but the pieces are in the original, almost urtext, version. All of my favorites are still in the Noona book. I recommend looking for that one instead.
