In Persichetti's 100th anniversary year, we are pleased to announce a newly re-engraved edition of his classic Little Piano Book, now in standard format. Since its premiere in 1954 by 10-year-old Lauren Persichetti, the Little Piano Book has become the introduction to contemporary music for generations of piano students. The composer indicates, "The Little Piano Book is a collection of easy keyboard pieces that may be performed separately or in groups of any selection. They can serve as preparation for the larger contemporary works and may be useful both as teaching and concert material.".

    I adore teaching (and playing!) these rewarding little piano pieces. They are short and loaded with interesting rhythms and harmonies. My students seem to like them as much as I do, too. A little challenge; a lot of result!
