Review quote

I have used this book for many years and always found it excellent. It combines warm ups, technical exercises and musical literacy in an accessible way, and I have yet to find it bettered by any other tutor book. Andrew Mason, Music Teacher Magazine, February 2014 This is definitely the book I will be using in future for beginners ... the method provides the most solid foundation imaginable for further progress.
