Dear Elise,

I just want to write and tell you how wonderful it was this last semester to have your books for my piano pedagogy class. They are a perfect guideline for aspiring and/or inexperienced teachers who are unsure of the best order of progression in the students’ learning process and how to implement it in the weekly lesson. Even though I teach my pedagogy students all of the important concepts in teaching, they were very excited to have a written lesson plan guide that they could easily decipher and follow. I know that these books will be a most beneficial addition to the University of Houston Moores School of Music library and thank you again for the time and effort you have put into writing them.
