Enjoy 49 beautifully arranged piano pieces from 43 operas by Carol Linda Carlson, the founder of OrganMaster Shoes!
This collection is the perfect start for piano students learning about our rich heritage of opera and classical composers. In fact, the author's intention is to alert musicians to the fact that we actually hear bits of opera every day in commercials, movies, and other media. Yet, most people are unaware of this.
Carol carefully researched this collection for four years, studying the orchestral arrangements of her favorite pieces. The resulting arrangements are lively intermediate level piano tunes.

"Thank you very much for sending me your lovely music book, Grand Opera for Piano Students. The transcriptions are expertly done, not too hard, but not too thin or reductive, either. They give an accurate impression of the original, and are fun and agreeable to play. I think it is exactly the thing to get students interested in the opera repertoire. I hope it is successful and inspires a volume two!" - Philip K.
