Review quote

...these are must-have collections for modern teachers as they cover such a wide variety of styles and genres exploring both new and old works from composers all around the world. * TimTopham.com * Could easily serve as a one-stop shop for a piano curriculum. An inspiring and excellent set of repertoire. * Music Teacher * These books are essential collections of popular, exciting pieces. My favourites include the classic Top Cat!, Grieg's romantic, lyrical Arietta and the delightful, jazzy Blue Sky Blues. I am certain that students and teachers alike will love the versatility of these appealing books as much as I do! Martin James Bartlett * BBC Young Musician of the Year 2014 * A vibrant and inspiring series...what better way to encourage students than with these tried and tested favourites. Murray McLachlan * EPTA * Pianists will find works they've always wanted to play, and discover new repertoire too! Erica Worth * Pianist magazine *
