Album Notes
This is the companion music book for "Roots, The Solo Piano Album," which received 8 Grammy nomination considerations. It is a wonderful collection of solo piano pieces for the advanced beginner, intermediate to advanced pianist. This collection provides a variety of moods and styles, all challenging, yet interesting to play.

"Roots: The Solo Piano Songbook" provides a wonderful gift for the pianists in your life, especially when combined with the Roots Audio CD insert provided. This music book was professionally notated directly from the CD, and is presented in a beautiful package for the pianist.

"I believe that I have found quite a remarkable collection of piano pieces for late intermediate or advanced students. Laurie's music has the pianistic touches of Chopin, the ornaments of Baroque, the sophistication and the grace of classical piano music; yet her structures and harmonies follow the verse-chorus structures of Elton John's music and the type of contemporary piano music many students love to play."
~Penka Kouneva, Professor of Music, Hollywood Film Composer and Orchestrator (The Third Nail, Richard III) (Matrix 2, 3, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Pirates of the Carribbean, At World's End)~

"A masterpiece which will fill a void in the piano literature. The presentation is marvelous with each verbal description and a clear copy to read."
~Mary Jane Schultz Piano Studio MTAC, National Guild of Piano Teachers CAPMT, Suzuki, SYMF~

"...This is a wonderful collection of some of Laurie’s most beautiful music. Some of the pieces are rather difficult, but several are suitable for upper-intermediate and early-advanced players. A joy for all pianists!" ~Kathy Parsons~

"Roots, The Solo Piano Songbook" is also available in PDF format from the Laurie Z. Online Store.

The songs featured in the recording and music book of "Roots" were recorded simultaneously into Disklavier format, and "Roots" is available virtually from Yamaha by clicking on the link at the left.
