Review quote

To spice up the duets, listening games and basic improvisation sections are included. These not only aid aural awareness - often overlooked for pianists - but also focus the skills gained by duet playing. * Alec Boulton, Music Teacher August 05 * This unusual duet book includes activities and games to build skill in ear training and improvisation . . . The charm of this book is the unexpected changes in sound from one duet to the next. There are swing tunes, fast dances, and a quiet Berceuse, as well as many original pieces and familiar melodies . . . Careful fingering, articulation, and expression markings will help students with the interpretation; many of the duets would be welcome additions to recitals.
This book will be a joy for students and teachers to explore. * Lynette Zelis, Clavier Magazine, May 07 * Duets with a Difference (to be used in combination with Piano Time 2) has a wealth of fun and funky pieces, along with listening games aimed at the young beginner. Mixed Doubles, the companion to Piano Time 3, is a further collection of over 20 duets, and takes in a whole range of differing musical styles. This is one of the best ways to introduce the student unfamiliar with the duet medium to the idea of primo and secondo. No
self-respecting teacher would want to be without either volume or, indeed, the entire Piano Time series. * Tim Stein, Pianist Oct 05 *

About Pauline Hall

Pauline Hall graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and then taught in schools and privately. Whilst living and teaching in Harrogate she felt the need for a piano tutor which made learning fun, and which progressed at the pace of her slowest learner. She started by writing little tunes in pupils' notebooks, and these formed the basis of Tunes for Ten Fingers; the Piano Time series developed from this.
