    This collection is a valuable resource for those looking to expand their repertoire and teaching repertoire. There are eight pieces I would like to learn, and several I would teach. I appreciate the wide diversity of genres, the composer biographies, and the Performance Notes.

  • April 20, 2017 Overrated collection

    I was a bit disappointed with this collection - am only interested in the Florence Price composition - the remainder of the book is not up to snuff for expanding my repertoire. I also think the transcriptions are rather mediocre.
