I recently received this collection for my birthday and have loved it. My friends think I am doing outstanding and as a true beginner it is because of the way the author has made it easier for the beginner to understand. Great collection of works.
America's All-Time Favorite Piano Pieces is an outstanding book compiled and edited by Amy Appleby. This amazing collection contains over 160 familiar piano favorites which will appeal to all intermediate and advanced piano players. Every selection is enjoyable to play and worth while learning. There are Classical gems from Bach, Beethoven and Mozart, etc. There are Romantic favorites from Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky. Some of the difficult compositions have been transposed into easier keys for the less advanced students to play. Yet, every melody sounds so professional. About one half of the book is devoted to American composers such as John Philip Sousa and George M. Cohan. There are sections of jazz, orchestral themes, novelty solos, hymns and celebrations. The book is attractive with its patriotic cover and easy to read. It is bound with a plastic comb so there is no bending of the binding to keep the book open. The notes are clearly written and not squashed together making it visually pleasing. As a music teacher, I have never seen such an impressive compilation of music literature. I highly recommend this very reasonably priced book to every piano student.
