Los Angeles, CA — May 7, 2012 - Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands  of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases Decade by Decade: 100 Years, an Easy Piano collection over  250 pages worth of the most universally beloved songs from an entire  century of popular music, arranged by the internationally acclaimed  piano arranger, Dan Coates.

Decade by Decade: 100 Years equips pianists with a diverse  array of songs that are poised to delight any audience. One hundred  years of hits from classic standards to smash hit singles and movie  themes are included, such as “Yankee Doodle Boy,” “Danny Boy,” “Singin’ in the Rain,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “Over the  Rainbow,” “Rock Around the Clock,” “It’s My Party,” “Hotel California,”  “Eye of the Tiger,” “A Whole New World,” “Need You Now,” and much more.

The great sounding, easy-to-play arrangements in this folio feature  Coates’ unique talent of coaxing lush, professional sounds that are  surprisingly simple to master, even for the casual hobbyist. Fun facts  about each piece are included to broaden understanding of pop music history and to put all of these mega-hits into perspective.  For practice, performance, or pleasure, this handy and valuable volume  contains songs that every pianist should have in their repertoire. All  song arrangements include lyrics and chord symbols.

As one of Alfred’s most prolific authors, Dan Coates has arranged  thousands of popular music titles since 1976. Composers and artists such  as John Williams, Burt Bacharach and Elton John, have expressed total  confidence in Dan's ability to create outstanding piano arrangements that retain the essence of the original music. He has  arranged everything from movie, television and Broadway themes to  chart-topping pop and rock titles. In addition to creating piano  arrangements for players of all levels, Dan also composes original music for student pianists.
