David, have you ever heard the Hisaishi pieces I mentioned? They're fairly different in nuance or personality from the Ghibli pieces. For those not familiar, Studio Ghibli is the anime company famous for Totoro and Spirited Away, among others. Hisais

ShiroKuro mentioned Joe Hisaishi. One of the Studio Ghibli sheet music collections, which are available for various levels and prices, might be a good thing to have. I have the Yamaha easy collection. It's easy enough to sight read, but still has so
