    I love this collection. I am working on moving from intermediate to advanced and these songs are a good warmup. Some of the songs border on silly but they are a good relaxing warmup after vocalizes before moving to more difficult pieces. The melodies are simple and interpretation staightforward, so...

    you can focus on tone and placement and other matters rather than the difficulty of the pieces. Accompanist knows what she is doing! She gives clear downbeats for opening attacks and the tempo is just right. He expression and interpretation of the pieces on the piano is just right. Very pleased and would recommend to others. Great for beginners, good warmups for intermediates.
