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.
