Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Each song is two or three pages long, so it doesn’t get too overwhelming for easily-overwhelmed students. A good balance of upbeat rags and slower ballads, my students never get bored and I never get sick of the same old thing over and over.
My students enjoy playing these books and I enjoy teaching out of them! Martha Mier does it again. I love everything I’ve purchased by her and my Jazz, Rags, and Blues are by far my favorite.

The pieces are not too long, which is good as an introduction to these types of piano pieces.
These simple pieces allow you to play very recognizable patterns that are clearly Jazz, Ragtime and Blues - even at this level.
There is just enough challenge in them that you have to do some work to make them sound great, but they are easy enough that you can enjoy them immediately and you have a sense of accomplishing something right off the bat.
