Review quote

It is very positive to see two new publications from ABRSM for double bass ... bass players have needed to wait patiently for our turn in the series publication, and the choice of music makes it worthwhile. * Arco (ESTA) * A must-have for teachers and students who are looking for progressively challenging pieces that will advance facility on the instrument as well as introduce a knowledge of many genres of music. * The Strad * Essential for bassists and their teachers. * MI Pro *show more
