Press Reviews

"uncomplicated, thorough, entertaining and very musical ... quite an achievement for a tutor book ... students will enjoy learning from this method ...... a valuable resource for all teachers"

"Great for introducing children to an all-round approach to music making ..... the music is varied in style and genre and could be adapted for mixed-instrument groups if necessary. All in all an exciting and innovative method"

There are endless opportunities to composer, improvise, listen and to play in mixed ensembles ... well done to everyone involved!"
