"This class piano text is the best available--the introduction generates excitement in the first paragraph! The choice of music is excellent. The procedures are detailed enough without rushing through the basics. The worksheet reviews are comprehensive, but not intimidating. The writing exercises are fun and challenging at the same time. The students will love the added CD (which has orchestrations), and so will the instructor!"--Gwen Threadgill, Troy University

"This text has a clear, systematic, and creative approach to introducing and reinforcing concepts. It is very user-friendly for both the instructor and student. The worksheet reviews help to reinforce the concepts learned. . . . The stylistically diverse repertoire is suitably and tastefully chosen. The inclusion of 20th-century repertoire and techniques makes the text refreshing and up-to-date. The enhanced materials are particularly useful and appealing. They provide extra exercises and ensemble pieces in addition to introducing accessible classic pieces."--Susan Chan, Portland State University
