I have been teaching myself to play piano since 2009. I have wanted to play the Clair de Lune for a long time but did not feel confident to tackle it until now. I like Debussy's impressionistic melodies, and have already learnt his Arabesque and Reverie, before taking on this. Raymond Banning's finger-numbering and the accompanying notes to the manuscript are very useful for a learner like myself - it is the reason why I chose to purchase this annotated edition over others. A learner can waste a lot of time working out the fingering when there is insufficient instruction.
highly recommended service

A Wonderful Way to Buy Sheet Music

It couldn't be easier to find and buy sheet music. Forget going to various music stores in search of your selection. Virtual Sheet Music makes buying music simple and fast.

This is very useful for a beginner approaching Impression. The music is spaced out with fingerings marked.
A great price and product. Fingerings are included in the score. No pedaling markings, but I have my own that I am penciling in.

The music was promptly printed off and was clear and easy to read. Good service!

The fingerings given in these sheets, while difficult, are clearly well thought out; they allow a smooth legato sound without the use of the pedal.
Fingering by Banning
by Frank Schneideron April 27th, 2010
I bought this for the fingering pattern given. Banning does a good job here. As always, I happen to prefer more than is given and this piece is no exception. I liked his explicit specification of right hand "r." and left hand "l." at times on the score.

Clair de Lune

I purchased this for my son and he was very pleased about the quality, the immediacy, and the price.

Looks good. Thanks. It looks like the same one I learned years ago.
Virtual Sheet Music is wonderful!

I had agreed to play Claire de Lune for a very special program but could not find my copy anywhere. I spent hours looking for it in my collection, but to no avail. Finally I thought to check online, and there you were! I had a good, clear copy in no more than ten minutes and could not be more pleased. You may be sure I will use your service again.
As far as I remember the original, this edition is accurate, but it has been a number of years since I have played the piece. (I would be surprised to find any material differences from the original.) I am a classically trained pianist and have been performing for over fifty years.
Great Pice. Love the Fingering

This is a beautiful piece! It is a joy to play. The fingering is very helpful in this edition.
