Reading Bass Clef is Easy!

Over the years many people have told me that while they have found reading treble clef to be easy, they have found reading bass clef to be quite difficult. Of course as a piano performer and teacher for several decades, I knew that this didn’t have to be the case. That, in fact, reading bass clef could be … well, EASY! So for all of those people who’ve struggled, I know that you will find this book extremely helpful.


This book is a collection of pieces arranged for smaller hands. Over the years I had many good students who wanted to play difficult compositions, but their hand had not yet developed. Not wanting to simplify the music, I made many adjustments to fit their hands.
