I purchased the Holiday Classics, Primer for an elementary student. Presenting three versions of each piece is a brilliant idea. It encourages a student to build on their skills and hear how each small change creates a different sound. I definitely recommend this book!
Love the Primer Holiday Book! My students are excited and motivated to move through each of the 3 levels presented (great idea!) and I’m enjoying teaching the pieces, as well. Great concept! I’ll be using these books long-term with my students. Plus, the signed copies made my students feel very special. Thanks for putting together a holiday book that truly meets my student’s needs!
I am looking forward to using Holiday Classics for many years to come with my students. The selection of music is excellent, and the gradual increase in the level of difficulty is exactly what I was looking for!
I love the layout of this book. Great idea having each song with 3 versions. Very motivating and also works well for various levels. It was a great purchase for my students transfering into Piano Pronto. Every one who purchased can play something and has songs to work toward as well.
Wonderful collection with harmonies for the primer level player who wants to play Hands Together!
The layout on this book is awesome! Every student that has seen it wants one. It boosts their confidence when they see how quickly the progress from version 1-3. I hope that you create more books like this in the future!
A fabulous book for those just starting out on the piano! My students love learning version 1 and then finding how easy it is to progress to the next level. I wish there were more books that had this format!
My students and I are enjoying this book so much! They love the challenge of wanting to learn all 3 versions! It is definitely a studio favorite!!
This book has brought a smile to my face all week! The kids are soooo excited to learn these and the progression from easy to more difficult is so awesome. Most of the kids, even early beginners have been able to transition to the version 2 arrangement quite easily and then the third version is a piece of cake by the time they get there. It’s like learning in layers!
A brilliant idea to combine multiple levels of difficulty in one book. This is a great value for the parents and a confidence builder for the student as they can “level-up” whenever they’re ready. As always, lovely arrangements…and I’m adding the secondo parts from the Christmas for Two to make an even richer student experience. Parents love it, too!
I find myself and my students continually coming back to this book. The different levels are great and the kids enjoy “leveling up” as they attempt to conquer the various versions.
I have a brand new adult student who’s principal goal is to learn Christmas music. This book is a perfect fit for her, because she can enjoy it on so many levels. She can sightread the simplest version, work on the harder version, and aspire to the most difficult version. She’s having a wonderful time, and she’s only had 4 lessons!
This book is brilliant! I LOVE the 3 different versions for each song! The beginning kids were so excited to play something with a simple left hand. Genius!
This book is awesome! I gave autographed Christmas books to each of my students for the Fall Recital; several of them were in this level. I love the fact that there are three versions to each song. The first version is just the basic melody; version 2 adds the left hand accompaniment (but still has note names as a help) and version 3 drops the note names completely. The kids absolutely love the songs; it’s February and they still want to play them. Thanks, Jennifer – you are the bomb!
