Review by Kathy Parsons
Michele McLaughlin Piano Sheet Music Collection is a collection of eighteen piano solos from eight of Michele’s albums spanning 2006-2017. This collection was published by Hal Leonard, but the pieces are the original transcriptions found in Michele’s earlier songbooks, not new ones. Michele has two previous “best of” sheet music compilations, Reflections (2005) and Top 20 (2015), and only one piece from each of those books is included in this one, so you won’t be duplicating what you already have. However, if you already have all of Michele’s sheet music from 2006-2017 (that’s a lot of books!), there is nothing new. It’s always nice to have a fresh new sheet music book, though, and this is a nice one!

The songbook is a lot of fun to play and is a good overview of Michele’s music. None of the pieces are very difficult, so pianists at an intermediate to early-advanced playing level should have little trouble mastering the music. The pieces range from 2-8 pages and none of the key signatures is too challenging. Quite a few of the pieces have fairly repetitive patterns on the left hand, making them easier to play than they sound - always a good thing! The music is expressive and covers a broad range of emotions. I wish the book was spiral-bound, but Hal Leonard’s publications rarely are.

Michele McLaughlin Piano Sheet Music Collection is available wherever Hal Leonard sheet music is sold, including Amazon, Sheet Music Plus and Michele’s website.
