  • January 28, 2019 The Professional Pianist - Solos for Christmas

    I found the arrangements in this book to be generally useful, very pleasant and contemporary. I incorporated three of the pieces in my Christmas program this year that I played at local retirement communities. The residents enjoyed these selections greatly. The arrangements fit well under the hands and do not...

    take long to master. This is an intermediate level piano collection. I would recommend them to any intermediate level pianist looking for some different arrangements of familiar Christmas carols.

    This book is nice, but isn't my first choice to play from for Christmas favorites. Many of the arrangements are just way too short in my opinion (2 pages), and if I'm playing for church, and event, or even myself, I prefer a longer arrangement. The other reason...

    it isn't my first choice is that I have very small hands, and quite a few of the arrangements have a lot of large chords, octaves, and are just generally uncomfortable to play for someone with very small hands.

  • December 08, 2018 Great for gigs!

    I recently had a Christmas gig (our university president's Christmas party) and I only needed this book. My teacher lent it to her students playing at the gig, and all we had to do was sightread for like an hour. This book is perfect for gigs and sightreading practice...

    ; it's a lot more fun than sightreading classical music as well. There are some more advanced pieces in here as well, but even they can be simplified as you play through them.

    To panacea0009- I take music books like this to a local print shop. They can cut the binding and place a spiral binder quite easily. Inexpensive $4-5. Fedex stores do this also. But costs more. This is a wonderful book.
