Music Lessons Remembered

The Leila Fletcher piano course. Book one.

Title: The Leila Fletcher piano course. Book one.
By: Leila Fletcher

I saw this book on a cart and the memories of my first piano lessons over 50 years ago came flooding back. Sitting up straight, feet dangling down, my mom or piano teacher sitting beside me. It is the same book with the same red cover that I used to learn to pick out tunes on the piano. I bet I can still play most of those pieces. One of my first recital pieces was in that book. My copy remained in the bench of our piano for years. My kids even played from Leila Fletcher before they all took up different instruments.
I recommend this book for piano beginners or for a musical stroll down memory lane.
