As always, I appreciate your input. Many of these pieces have been restored because of your suggestions. Some of you who play for churches and concerts have used these, and some of you who teach have included some of these in your suggested titles for students. I really appreciated you all! Not every student should play these pieces — they are not part of the the standard repertoire, but they do provide the spice that is necessary to attract an audience! I encourage you to suggest some of these American pieces to your students who have the technical ability to play them. And, as always, please continue to send your suggestions to me!
