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.show more

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 As well as re-vamping the covers and the general look of the books, there are also new pieces added, often in a more upbeat style. There are still some games to play and a new supportive website. I found the earlier editions invaluable for younger studenets, and recommend these highly.'Pamela Lidiard, EPTA Piano Professional September 05 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. * Time Stein, Pianist Oct 05 *show more
