"I liked reading this book from a musician’s standpoint. I found the included exercises invaluable to a pianist. I could use this with my more senior students. I enjoyed the casual/humorous approach to the methodology. This book could be used as a resource for amateur and not-so-amateur composers."

By the way, here's a little something about myself

Daniel E. Friedman has written over ninety compositions that have been performed across Canada by dozens of orchestras and ensembles. He has also had some of his works performed in the U.S.A. and overseas. As a pianist, he has repeatedly debuted his own selection of preludes and he premiered his piano concerto with the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra in June/ 2011.

In addition to being awarded many composing commissions, Daniel has written for film and arranged numerous songs. He is currently head of a prominent music department in Ontario.

Mr. Friedman began taking an interest in piano and composing from an early age and started formal lessons at the age of seven. At twelve years of age, he found out that he had perfect pitch and decided to pursue a musical career at that point in his life. Daniel is also the co-owner of www.pianolessons101.com, a site dedicated to beginner pianists.

Daniel’s teaching diplomas, Bachelor of Music and Master of Music, came from the Royal College of Music (England), Queen’s University (Canada) and the Peabody Institute (U.S.A.).
