This five volume series, at five levels of difficulty, compiles carefully selected music for piano students by various French composers, much of which will be new to many teachers, allowing for fresh discoveries. Each volume is in progressive order, and includes composer biographies. “Points for Practice and Teaching” illuminate special issues for the student, and can be used as a lesson plan for the teacher for teaching a piece.
