I think my neighbors hate me2014年6月26日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
The one reviewer is correct- what you see in the kindle sample or "look inside" is NOT what this book is. I actually didn't even notice this until I read that review (though now that I think of it the sample on my kindle did seem tougher than the book). But that worked in my favor- I haven't played at all in 15+ years so I have no business ordering anything other than "easy piano" versions. Like other reviewers have said, the most difficult part of the arrangements is the rhythm and syncopation- time signatures frequently change and then change back mid-piece and tempos can quickly go from allegro to lento in the same song. I was only classically trained, so I was never any good with syncopated free-style rhythms like in jazz or other styles- but if those come easily to you then you'll likely have an easy time with this. Once I was able to work through the rhythms I really really enjoyed these arrangements. I'm a huge fan of the show and often listen to the soundtrack recording, and a lot of these really do sound like the original pieces. You know how sometimes the "easy" arrangements just sound too simplified and watered-down to do justice to the original? Not so for this (within reason- obviously the piano in your living room isn't going to sound like a full orchestra). After not playing for so long, I'm so glad that this was the book to get me back to the keyboard (but I think my neighbors are cursing John Lunn)!
The preview sheet music is NOT what will be sent2014年6月9日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Perhaps it's my own fault for not seeing the small print on the top corner of the book, but this is the easy piano arrangement. The preview shows the more advanced arrangement which is what I thought I would be getting with the print copy. I would suggest Amazon correct this to show that the print copy is the easy version upon opening the preview and have a separate Kindle listing which is the advanced arrangment so as to not confuse customers.
Great music, fits soundtrack2018年6月23日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I love playing songs from this book! I'm not the best pianist, but this music is easy enough to perfect with practice. Good for professionals, great for beginners! Songs are pulled directly from the series and playing them encourages reminiscence of scenes from the show. Would highly recommend for Downton fans!
Very enjoyable to play through!2017年4月8日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I loved this book from the moment I sat down to play the first song! The first song is about 5 pages long, but was very easy to pick up and contains the main Downton themes that we know and love! It is very fun to play through. I did not give it 5 stars because the rest of the songs in the book are themes that to me are less noticable (although I'm only on season 2 of Downton Abbey, so maybe they will become more familiar as I finish the series). But even if just to buy the book for the first song, it was very worth it to me!
Beautiful Piano Music2013年9月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I bought this book for my sister for her birthday. She was soooo excited to receive it. She immediately took it to the piano and began to play. It is not for beginners, but you need not be very advanced to play most of it either. These are some very beautiful pieces. It includes music from multiple seasons. For me, it was worth every penny, because my sister loved it.
