Reviews - What do customers think about High School Musical: Vocal Selections (Piano / Vocal / Guitar)?
It's great! My son loves to play the music. Aug 14, 2007
I'm not a musician. I'm just a listener, but everyone else in my family sings and plays the piano. I thought all my kids would enjoy this book, but my oldest son, who is almost 16 years old, has been the only one to really use the book. I enjoy listening because the composition is much like the recordings. I think that's why my son likes it too.
an excellent material for voice teaching or even just for jam sessions Jun 11, 2007
the day i got this book,i brought it to the studio with me right away.for a non-excellent note-reader, this book is really convenient. if youre not reading the piano part, you can use the chords for the guitar and apply it to the piano to provide a piano accompaniment for your students. What i love about this book is that, the piano part doesnt sound like too elementary. The arrangement of scores sound almost the same as the soundtrack. i have no regrets buying this.
Too difficult to follow Apr 24, 2007
I'm a pretty good piano player. But I had trouble playing the songs in this book. I think this book is only good for the lyrics but not for the music.
Great entertainment for piano playing child Feb 24, 2007
This is done very well. Something fun yet challenge for the piano playing or guitar playing child to work on. Will keep them interested to learn songs they love.
Half Good/Half Not So Good Feb 13, 2007
The problem with this piano/vocal book is not in the music itself. The translation from orchestration to piano accompanyment is solid, but several selections are not well suited for the piano. Songs such as "Get'cha Head in the Game," "We're All in This Together," and to a lesser extent "Bop to the Top" were never meant to be played on the piano because they are rhythmically driven. The songs that do translate to the piano well are "Start of Something New," "What I've Been Looking For," "When There Was Me and You," and "Breaking Free." The other two songs are just okay in my estimation.
If you really want to learn to play the 4 songs or so mentioned, then get the book. If you're looking for a full-scale onslaught of High School Musical accompanyment, you're probably just not going to find it in a piano/vocal book due to the aforementioned rhythm-driven songs.
