Quick Overview

A truly charming collection of folksong arrangements for beginning students if the piano. The arrangers have brought to these familiar tunes intriguing musical settings that are full of solid musical ideas. The value of this collection lies in the skillful adaptation of these folksongs for the early grades and in the variety (46) of the pieces chosen. These are musically interesting studies that provide the student with exercises encompassing all of the basic techniques that must be learned in the early years. The late Irwin Freundlich, noted concert pianist and member of the faculty of the Julliard School, wrote " I find this INVITATION TO THE PIANO a most welcome and useful addition to the teaching materials now available for the early grades." For studios, schools, colleges. Very easy.
