    This book is misrepresented. There is one piece for the right hand only, and one for the right or left hand only. I don't think that fast series or 64 th notes should be EA.

  • July 06, 2011 Absolutely WONDERFUL

    I purchased this book because I became interested in left hand music from Ravel's left hand concerto. However, as the editor states, much left hand music goes unappreciated in the shadow of the well-known Scriabin Prelude and Nocturne for the Left Hand Alone. I have now fallen in...

    love with most of the music in here; the book has a good combination of exercises, short pieces, harder pieces, and left hand pieces that sound more like both hands playing at once. Some pieces are extremely challenging; the blumenfeld etude and the Alkan etude are some of the hardest pieces I've seen, but the book mixes up the difficulty level. Great way to improve upon your left hand or enjoy playing music that is truly beautiful.

  • September 17, 2008 Not for the Faint Hearted

    This book, which I believe was advertised as being for an early-advanced pianist had merely three pieces which I would designate as early advanced. I have been studying piano off and on since I was 5 years old, and am now in my 70s. I don't play piano...

    as much as I used to because I play viola in a local orchestra, and clarinet in a local concert band, both of the latter instruments started after I retired. I had surgery for a massive tear in my right rotator cuff, and the only mobility I had was my left arm. To keep from going crazy, I opted to purchase this book. Most of the pieces were beyond me, and one piece was a one-hand version of a piece I had played as a teen-ager. I found this piece to be doable because I knew the notes, but the finguring was not optimum. Two others were also doable. Fortunately now I am able to use my right arm, and I'm back to playing normally. Anyone want a used copy?

  • April 11, 2008 Very nice book

    I love this book, it's been great. I got this book because I wanted the Scriabin Nocturne and figured I could look at some of the other pieces. The problem I have with this book is that a lot of the pieces are really hard. However, there are some...

    that are more playable for me (I've been playing for 8 years, am in high school, and stretch to reach a ninth). The preface of this book is great! It was very helpful for some things, and I have referred back to it a few times since playing the pieces. I really appreciated being able to read all his suggestions, because it is quite different to play with only one hand. I would recommend this book to a pianist with an already highly trained left hand, because there isn't a whole lot to build up on, in my opinion. That said, I don't know much about other left hand books and I really liked the preface. And there are some pieces to play that aren't exceptionally hard.

  • March 31, 2008 Thorough and Beneficial

    I got this book when a pinched nerve in my right arm and muscle atrophy in my RH prevented me from playing the piano with both hands. I was at RCM level 7 at that time, and I played from this book for two or three years. It has a...

    very helpful, witty introduction and a nice variety of music--not to mention a variety of skill levels. Most songs would be Early Advanced--several Advanced, a few Intermediate and even one quite easy Late Beginner piece. Many accomplished pianists are hampered by a weak left hand, and I would recommend the book for anyone: even if they are capable of two-handed playing.
