    This is my new fav! Even if a pianist isn't able to execute all the embellishments, it is imminently playable!

    Pretty collection of Christmas music with the usual Dan Coates arrangement style. I do gigs at senior centers, assisted living centers, and one restaurant and will be relying on this book for December's Christmas gigs. My only complaint is that the book won't stay open without an inconvenient...

    clothespin. I solved that by a trip to a UPS Store and had them install a spiral binding for about $5. The book is worth buying just for "My Grownup Christmas List" which is an awesome piece of music. The arrangements in this book are not as difficult as the arrangements in "Dan Coate's Complete Advanced Piano Solos".

    I'm really enjoying the arrangements in this book. They sound good, and I'll agree with others, the pieces are short/shorter but they aren't so hard to require a ton of work. Makes a great mix of songs to play at events.

  • 2017-02-08 16:46:52.0 The best Christmas album I've found in 72 yrs!

    I perform piano solo arrangements of Christmas songs whenever I get a chance during the holidays, and this is the best all-around collection I've found in 72 yrs of playing! It has both classic & contemporary, something to please everyone. And LOTS of them! I did take it to...

    an office supply store and have it spiral bound for easier page turning, which would be my suggestion to the publisher, and the pages don't stay open on their own.

    Good arrangements but fast progressions and runs require some expertise.
