This is THE supplement to have for mid-Movement 1 students to begin! Students love the pieces, there is some great technique, minor sounds, movement around the piano Wonderful teaching pieces but even more valuable as motivating solos.

This is my go-to book, if a student every needs a break from their method book for a few weeks. These pieces always seem to bring them back around!

Great for beginners! I have my beginner students age 10 and up start with this and they all have greatly enjoyed playing each piece. I highly recommend this song solo book in bulk for your studio!

My students are absolutely thrilled with Nightscape and the other pieces in the book. They are flying off the shelves.

I put this in front of an adult student and she was elated at all the cool, modern sounding pieces that were accessible to her level of playing. I got right back onto the Piano Pronto website and ordered more! So nice to have supplements that please!

Another fantastic collection that appeal to students!

Beautiful melodies!

One of the most important books to have in any Jennifer Eklund collection. My students had to take turns performing each piece because they all wanted to learn and perform all of them! I love the different styles presented!

There is nothing better than hearing a student say, "I LOVE that piece!" And this book is chock full of such solos. Contrasting styles that sound incredible but are easily accessible for the beginner. Amazing job, Jennifer!

I'm am so pleased with this book. Now all my students are going straight into this book after they finish Pizazz and the songs are a great fit. The music is wonderful and the book doesn't get too hard too quickly. Don't Get Twisted is a favorite for a fun piece and Cut and Run is a favorite lyrical piece. It is beautiful!!!

I love this book! When the students hear me play one of the songs, they say, "It's cool, but it sounds too hard for me." I encourage them to try it anyway and they are inspired and encouraged by these engaging, beautiful songs that are different from what they are used to playing and sound more advanced. I love hearing them say at their next lesson, "I already learned the whole song" or "I can play it from memory". Music to my ears!

Another wonderful collection of "must have" pieces! My students just love these pieces and I do TOO!

This book has saved several of my students who were losing interest in piano. All these pieces are a gem !!

A potential student came for a meet and greet last week and heard my daughter playing some pieces from this book. The new student perked right up and asked when she could start playing some of those songs! I foresee much use of this collection in my studio!

In much of the music world, we lack selections with this degree of attention to detail and an understanding of the styles students will love outside specific pop arrangements. Jennifer has captured the style, while allowing the students to relate these pieces to themes and ideas of their own, and within reach. Thank you! :)

I have a student at this level that I know will just love it! I like how they are so easy to play, yet sound so much more complicated. ;)

This fabulous collection of solos will inspire and delight the beginning pianist! How often do "easy" solos sound professional, complex, modern, and beautiful!!! Every piece in this book is one that a student would be so proud to play - ( perfect for teens and the adult student) every piece in this book is a showstopper and yet really is at a level that a beginner reader can accomplish! What a wonderful surprise this new collection is! I love it!!! Thank you for these beautifully crafted pieces!

This book has already been a huge hit with my students of all ages! One of my beginner adult students commented, "I love how these pieces sound so complex but are actually simple enough for me to play. I can't wait to try it out! This piece (Smooth Sailing) is so lovely."

One of my VERY picky teen boys that is also a beginner commented, "Wow, she writes music that teens will WANT to play."

This is a fantastic collection of wonderfully-written modern pieces. They are perfect for all ages & suitable for any venue. It's made such a splash with my students that I'm glad I purchased the studio licensing! I'm certainly going to need it.

So excited to find this new Spotlight Solos Songbook for my students. The songs in these books are cleverly written with modern, fresh but familiar sounding harmonies and rhythms, yet at a level that students can easily read. They have been a big hit among students, and also among parents who enjoy hearing new and interesting music.

A perfect supplement to anyone's teaching style and learning method. And the quotes under each title are a surprise bonus - where else will my students read inspiring quotes like Teddy Roosevelt's "Believe you can and you're halfway there." each day as they open their music to play a song?

Another wonderful collection that not only appeals to a wide variety of students, but gives me the opportunity for many "teachable moments" in phrasing, expression, style, key signatures, composition, and more.
