"I would say that It’s a Piano Thing 2 is quite simply one of the best original repertoire collections for intermediate players that I’ve come across."
"Boosey & Hawkes are to be commended for investing in this talented young composer, and with the support of such a distinguished publisher I for one hope that these pieces make their mark and take up a permanent place in the easy piano repertoire."Andrew Eales, PianoDao
