The revised Configuration Series is a strong, enjoyable, carefully organized set of books that are now supplied with Study and Performance Notes. These additions will guide students to look past the obvious and find richer meaning and satisfying interpretations through experimentation and discovery. Encourage your students by using these Study and Performance Notes when each piece is first assigned. Then follow through with discussions and experiments at subsequent lessons. In these ways, students will grow into resourceful and imaginative performers at the piano�which is what we want for each of our students.
