The pieces in this series are long-time favorites that have appeal for pianists of all ages. Very carefully correlated to standard piano method levels, each book contains arrangements that are musically appropriate to that level. The arrangements are teacher friendly, even for the teacher who is reluctant to add pop music to the curriculum. And the series is student friendly -- there will be willing practice! Titles: Arthur's Theme * As Time Goes By * La Bamba * The Man I Love * M*A*S*H * Night and Day * Someone to Watch Over Me * Southern Nights * The Summer Knows * Summertime * That's What Friends Are For.
