“In You've Got Rhythm: Read Music Better by Feeling the Beat, Anna Dembska and Joan Harkness effectively collaborate to present a practical yet imaginative guide to improving one's ability to read music... Highly recommended for music students, You've Got Rhythm is an excellent text for classroom instruction or personal tutorials.”
—The Bookwatch (Midwest Book Review)
“Your pieces have wonderful rhythms and harmony, are fun for the fingers, and progress at a sensible, steady, and stimulating pace. I keep returning to the lively aching of Don't Look Back, the tentative moodiness of Dogwoods in April, the mournful and scary Grief, the lumbering Bear, and that Chico-Marx-meets-Three-Stooges quality of Chowderhead. My wife commented that I have a passion for piano. And your Method bears the bulk of responsibility for that.”

Anna Dembska's ten duets from Piano, Body and Soul offer beautiful, sophisticated sounds to adventurous pairs of players. This book/CD set is perfect for teachers seeking duets for teens and adult beginners, lapsed pianists looking for a fun and inspiring way to get back to the keyboard, and Piano, Body and Soul students who need a second score for their piano partners.
“A light-hearted yet no-nonsense approach to a subject that often plagues the music hobbyist and professional alike. The book proves that music theory doesn't have to be a hair-pulling, nail-biting experience; it can actually be fun!”
