Review quote

"A great book filled with fun facts. Written in a child-friendly way, coupled with eye catching layout. A must have for young music enthusiasts!" - A.Charles (Secondary school music teacher)

"I loved it. Lots of great information and lovely illustrations. Well done!" - M.Toft (Peripatetic music teacher)

"A captivating and informative book with extensive content, though never dull. A whos's who of piano players and their influences. Plenty of information to spark further interest and research if desired. Key pianists and genres are covered along with a history of the instrument. Those wishing to broaden their knowledge further will find lesser-known pianists and pieces to research. The accompanying illustrations, really bring the text to life and music-related jokes and quizzes keep your interest. Excellently researched and compiled in a format that would suit a range of age groups." - Parent
