Review quote

The companion volume, Pianoworks Collection 1, provides an enterprising mixture of 30 more pieces that supplement the tutorial book, and informative annotations at the end of each piece help to improve the player's understanding of the music. * Pianist, October 07 * The actual teaching book costs GBP9.95 and comes with a CD of example performances and backing tracks. Couple this with a beautiful repertoire book at only GBP6.95 and you have a fine package designed to stimulate and train beginners from the age of about 13 upwards. It incorporates all sorts of music and is presented in an attractive, unpatronising and adult manner. The Bullards have exemplary credentials and I admire the way they have gone about this difficult task. * John York, Piano Sept 2007 *show more
