This is a book to help you learn to play the piano. It is not a 'Learn the Piano in Ten Easy Lessons' tutor - plenty of those exist - but an adventure introducing you to the world of music and stirring your imagination. Beginning with simple pieces, as you are fed with more knowledge the compositions become more advanced. They are all by composers whose works range from a 14th century Venetian dance to a 20th century South American tango. Your journey takes you through sixty-eight pieces wth their historical and geographical backgrounds, the last being the much-loved first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. Hence the title.

So happy to have discovered this!

My Piano desperately needed tuning and I absolutely ached to be able to go back to playing. I learned to play when I was young, and my piano has followed me from house to house ever since. But I never really played any more, apart from the last pieces my teacher taught me. When I stumbled across this I just had to have it. Without needing to spend money, or taking regular time out for lessons, I can get back to something I love doing. A large part of my problem was that it always took me such a long time to learn the pieces, and I absolutely had to be taught how to play it. I am useless at sight-reading unless I know how the piece sounds. This is a bonus with this compilation of pieces because most are so well known I know exactly what I should be producing. I have only just begun, but it is going well and I am just so excited about reaching the end because up there with Scott Joplin's The Entertainer, and Yann Tiersen's score from Amelie, the Moonlight Sonata is something I have always wanted to play.
