I’ve been playing piano for 13 years. When I was younger I had the easy piano version of these songs. And they are fine when you’re just learning. I didn’t play any songs from the Phantom until recently when I heard it was coming back to town. I pulled my old book out and played it. It just wasn’t full sounding and the keys the songs were in weren’t close to the CD. I bought this book and it was a bit difficult to adjust to all the different keys at first, but you definetly get used to it; especially if you practice at them. This book has more acurate presentations of the songs. They sound much fuller and beautiful.
Great for beginners and pros alike

This sheet music is great, doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner either! Easy to read and play. There are small mistakes: not all of the Phantom theme song is written down. Also in Point of No Return they say to play an A instead of an Am. Otherwise, great. Angel of Music is probably the best song for beginners. Masquerade is an incredibly big pain in the neck, rhythm-wise.
Go ahead and buy it (if you only want songs from "Phantom")

I really Liked this book because you get to play the main songs from The Phantom. It really Isn’t that easy, but the harder it is the better it sounds! I reccomend this book to all who love the Phantom songs and would like to play them for themselves
Awesome Music Book

This is a great piano book for those who love the music of The Phantom of the Opera. The songs are not terribly difficult, but they sound great. The keys some of the songs are written in could make it hard for less experienced players.

I got this book for Christmas and it is a great book. I love it. I play out of it as much as I can. It is very good for sight reading and they are good songs to learn to sing. This book is great! Buy it!
This one is pretty authentic with varying difficulty for each song

What I look for in Piano music is how authentic it sounds to the play/song. This one is pretty authentic with varying difficulty for each song. Overall I love the book, music and arrangement. I am a beginner/intermediate piano player, so some of these songs I got really good at and some of them are still a struggle for me. But my favorite songs “Music of the Night” and “All I ask of You” were easy enough to learn and still sound great as far as authenticity to the music
This is so cool!

I love this play, book, and movie! The music is really fun to play, but watch out for the chords! “The Point of No Return” calls for all 5 fingers spread across more than one octave, ouch! The chords in TPONR and the theme song were the hardest for me, but the rest is easy and fun! Buy this!!
Faithful adaptation from stage to home

I’m obsessive-compulsive, and one of my most consuming love affairs was with Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera. I first saw Phantom on my first trip to Toronto in 1992, and proceeded to see it three more times at the Pantages Theatre in the coming years. I would listen to the CDs endlessly, memorized the libretto, and bought any Phantom-related merchandise I could get my hands on, including the sheet music. At the time, I was a beginning piano student, so I purchased the Easy Piano edition, but soon after purchased the regular piano sheet music.
good for piano solo, too

Though it is piano/vocal, it is also piano solo. VERY nice music.
