"Having met Chris and knowing his abiliies in writing relevent and thoroughly thought out material, I was intrigued, as a teacher of 'keyboard', how this material would work and it does. It is very clear in its presentation, suitably demanding in its progress, variable in styles and takes a player from 'scratch' to sounding competent in a short space of time. Also, it allows the player to try out improvisation/composition - useful if players go on to take Grades in keyboard playing! The CD is useful, but once a player gets the hang of playing 'full' keyboard pieces, the CD is redundant (apart from listening to how the piece should sound!)"
