This unique collection contains 46 classical masterpieces from over 20 of the worlds greatest composers. It eliminates the need for multiple teaching sources since all the most popular pieces are contained within one book. Arranged by Jonathon Robbins in the order of difficulty, the pieces work with a student, gradually increasing the level of difficulty as the students ability progresses. Great care has gone into the layout, as a page turn is rarely necessary.
Since its release in 1996, this book has been a required text and preferred adjudicators choice of the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC) and now used by students across the entire country. Exceptional Classics For Piano by Santorella Publications has proven to be an extraordinary collection and sets the groundwork for disciplined students to tackle the challenge of the original masterworks in Exceptional Classics Level II.
