John Thompson’s Modern Course For the Piano 1936 – Pg.s 1 – 13

 

John Sylvanus Thompson (1889 Williamstown, Pennsylvania – 1963 Tucson, Arizona), was an American pianist, with a mysterious existence with very little to none of a biography left to tell his story. The pages provided to you, by Hystoria, proves that Mr. Thompson was indeed a different type of fellow.

Please do pay attention to song #6 on page #12 “The Scissors Grinder” – Accidentals: Always Be Careful to observe accidentals.
