  • November 05, 2003 A great late intermediate lesson book

    This is one of my favorite books. I remember enjoying it as a pre-teen in lessons, and I LOVE to teach it. The pieces are all beautiful, most are of a Classical nature. Highlights include: "Brazilian Holiday", "Rondeau"/Mouret (Theme from Masterpiece Theatre), "An American Hymn" ("Shall We Gather...

    at the River", arranged beautifully), and the challenging "Ballade"/Burgmuller. Key Signatures include E-Flat Major, A Major, and C Minor. I would highly recommend this book. The pieces are quite difficult, requiring a lot of practice, but they sound so wonderful.
