Press Reviews

"...super books...they contain classic themes many of which even non-classical music lovers will recognise. But what’s more, they are pieces which aren’t generally available on simple arrangements."
Keyboard Player, December 1989

"Once in a while one finds something really exciting in the piano teaching repertorie and I am sure teachers will welcome Christopher Norton's arrangements. An excellent collection and well recommended!"
Music Teacher, November 1989

"...a very generous and well-assorted selection of post-WW2 music..."
Music Reviews, Jan/February 1998

"Booseys’s books have a habit of including good tuneful material which is not always really available in an accessible format and this is no exception."
Keyboard Player, February 1991
