Playing Piano

I'm into a new book and loving it.
Actually, it was published in 1978, so it's not new-new but it's new to me.  It's been sitting on my shelf for 2 years and today I had a chance to open the cover and dig in.

(Complete Edition) 
by Dan Haerle

I played for an hour through pages 1-12, creating melodies, improvising with chord tones and scale tones.  It was relaxing and satisfying.  

Next week my lessons with tweens and teens will be infused with some of this.   I'd like my students to experience this relaxed feeling and I think this is a way to get there.
