Note: Following the PTG’s Code of Ethics, I disclose all business relationships where I have a financial interest. If you buy a book through the links above, Amazon gives me a few pennies through their associates program. If you’d like to give those pennies to Larry Fine instead, use this link: http://www.pianobook.com. It’s the same cost to you, either way.
