I have published two series of books

Piano Playing Made Easy includes:
  • Piano Playing Made Easy
  • Piano Playing Made Easy: Popular Songs
  • Piano Playing Made Easy: Christmas Songs
  • Piano Playing Made Easy: Sunday Songs
If you have never played piano and would like to teach yourself, the first book is for you. If you have had just a little experience or if you took piano as a child and want to start playing again, then you will enjoy the other three. Order from Publica tions International: (847) 676-3470.
The Creative Pianist is published by The Lorenz Corporation (actually a divsion of Lorenz called Heritage Music Press). It is a set of four beginning children's books which teach the music theory which children need to compose the ir own music. Original pieces of mine are provided to practice and to analyze. Then, opportunities are provided for the students to make up their own pieces. For these, the children use the theoretical concepts illustrated in what they have already pra cticed. Have your music store call The Lorenz Corporation at (800) 444-1144
