It is by no surprise that Dan Coates is a skilled piano arranger. All the songs in this book are arranged so that the majority of the sheet music for the other instruments, normally heard in the actual songs such as "There You'll be", is included in the piano arrangement. He lays down an excellent split or broken chord base that adds a nice professional flow to all the songs in this book excluding some of the jazz pieces, which by nature, needs a different left hand beat. Sight-reading higher and lower Octaves, as well as, playing long scales will test the limit of an intermediate piano player while playing from this book. The quality of song titles just adds to the dimension purchasing this book. This is a must buy! I purchased this from McKenzie books and I must say it's worth purchasing this book through a bookstore, used or even new, than going directly through Amazon.com stock. However, from experience, purchasers should be guaranteed that the book would be in pristine order if one purchases it from Amazon directly. Overall, I would also recommend Dan Coates Advanced Piano Solo Book: The Professional touch if one wants to truly understand Dan Coates' brilliance in piano composition.
