From the Publisher

Teachers seeking further material for their pupils to relish and enjoy but without searching through quantities of music that is technically inappropriate for the pupil's level, need look no further. James Rae has carefully selected a variety of pieces from classical to modern and studies of all kinds, for each of grades 1, 2 and 3, keeping in mind the technical requirements at each level. These books present an opportunity for pupils to broaden their musical experiences and explore the wide variety of music that is within their grasp. Selections include works by J. S. Bach, Schubert, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, Köhler, Popp, Gariboldi and Duke Ellington. Further titles include: Come Back Liza, Un Poquito Canto, Auld Lang Syne, Londonderry Air and pieces in varying styles by David Bedford, John Harle, Aubrey Beswick and James Rae.
