REVIEWS Microjazz series: ‘How can anyone doubt its huge influence and spot-on originality! Many have tried to ape it but no-one has improved on it’. Piano Magazine ‘A real boon – the best addition to the beginner teaching repertoire I’ve seen in years’. Graeme Humphrey (Professor of Piano, Royal Academy of Music) ‘The teacher pedagogy presentation was excellent. Chris gave an indepth presentation on how to perform his music. It was very enlightening as up to this moment we were only guessing as to performance and style techniques. This was a highlight for the teachers’. Piano teacher, Alberta Music Conference, Canada ‘The students were captivated by his colourful style of presentation as well as the practical, useful and insightful comments that he gave. It is certain that Mr Norton had a significant impact on all those who attended... His art will continue to impact on others for generations’. Fort McMurray Music Teachers Association report, Canada
