The perfect book for mid-beginners to make gorgeous music, or for intermediates to quickly prepare, because they sound more complex than they are. Through these pieces, pianists will learn dynamics, phrasing, pedaling, rubato and playing with expression. I really enjoyed playing Sailboats in the Bay (4 pg, the longest piece), Time Alone and A Memory; but they are all beautiful.

This is one of my favorite collections. Perfect for those that are still gaining skills but want to be able to make beautiful music now. These songs sound good even when played quite slowly. As there is a range of difficulty, it makes a good supplement to use over time.

One of the most gorgeous collection of pieces ever assembled for beginners ( or any level really) - I love playing these pieces myself and they are so beautiful, calming and just elegant - all of my students love these pieces particularly the preteens and adults!

A perfect remedy to those students who want an easy-to-learn but beautifully composed set of pieces, this book is a hit. The simplicity is matched by a really good sense of harmonic interest and flow. Love it.

I bought this collection for an adult student, and it is absolutely perfect for her. The pieces sound sophisticated, but they are not terribly technically difficult, and they fit very nicely under the hands. The leveling slowly progresses forward, so this would even be a nice alternative to a method book for an adult or teen beginner, once they've learned the basics.
