Misc. Comments

There are seven pieces in the Children’s Suite for Piano, and each piece is a beautiful little composition that stresses some aspect of technique, such as trills, within the context of a complete composition that is aesthetically pleasing.

—Heidi Von Gunden, The Music of Vivian Fine, Scarecrow Press, 1999 (adapted)


Music for Study...is a broad title that encompasses five separate sets of minatures....Fine composed these pieces for didactic purposes, but not specifically for her own few students. Children’s Suite is a wonderfully successful set and should be more widely known and used among piano teachers.

—Leslie Jones, “The Solo Piano Music of Vivian Fine,” Doctor of Musical Arts thesis, University of Cincinnatti, 1994
