It seems that everyone loves Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Beginning piano students want to play pieces from it, and advanced players always get compliments for playing pieces from The Nutcracker Suite at parties and gigs for the Christmas season.
Stanton’s has The Nutcracker Suite at varying levels for students and advanced performers. One of the easiest collections is arranged by Tom Gerou of Alfred Publishing. It is a 5-finger arrangement, i.e., one finger at a time plays the melody. The most advanced Nutcracker collection comes from G. Schirmer Inc. (Did you know that the “G” stands for “Gustave”?)
