The students who received this book are so excited about it, you could sense the wheels in their brains turning! The music sounds sophisticated and is highly motivating. So much fun!!

This is such a clever concept and I am excited to introduce this collection to some older beginners as a fun summer project! I appreciate that the styles and pianistic idioms are varied. Each of these pieces will be refreshing as well as reinforcing!

This book is a great idea - "Pick Your Own Path". My students are really enjoying the opportunity to determine where they go next!!! It is just like a game for them and they are finding it lots of fun. I found that the songs fit nicely under the hands of students, too!

Lisa has just provided me with summer lesson excitement!!! Not only for the students, but for me! I loved "Choose Your Own Adventure" Books when I was a child. If only I had a piano option way back then!

This is a terrific way to engage kids in a "game" of sorts! How will the musical journey end? Maybe the musical journey will just grow and bloom because of this fun, new and engaging way to work through new piano music!

It's all kinds of awesome and I absolutely guarantee that your students will be mesmerized by the whole "what happens next" process. Watch out: your students might not practice anything else for a while as they work their way through this book. Every piece is a gem.
