“I have found that [Classic Series] Volume 2’s five workshops cover more complicated musical concepts [than Volume 1] in a comprehensive way that will help students’ positive progress. I would strongly recommend this Series to young teachers and self-study adults.”
Dr. Anna Krendel – Past President and District IX Coordinator, California Association of Professional Music Teachers.
“This is an outstanding book. It is complete and clear in every way. It also could be used as a review book for all levels.”
Delores Rhoads – Owner, Musonia School of Music.
“The Classic Series Volume 2 is an excellent continuation of Volume 1. It contains intuitive activities that quickly expand on one’s knowledge and ability to play the piano as well as arrangements of classic melodies that are extremely rewarding to play. Having personally completed both volumes of The Classic Series, I would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about taking up the piano.”
