I think you should number fingers on the keys that they should play. it's easier to read!!
Dana: I frequently do put finger numbers in for my own students, in pencil... but only after observing them, usually, to see if they can figure out a fingering for themselves. This is something that pianists need to work out for themselves, and unless I feel very strongly about a fingering that I want to recommend, I prefer to leave it up to each teacher!

My piano student heard me play the first part (of the Pachelbel Canon) and immediately wanted to play it (and it was realistically achievable for her). Thank you! Regards, Tina
Shanette, US: I just purchased O Holy Nightto use as a duet for Christmas Eve Mass. Thank you so much for this simple, easy to read version as my vocalists are not professional and this music won't be quite so intimidating as other arrangements I have. Your expertise is much appreciated!! Merry Christmas!
