Press Reviews

"During my long career as a brass teacher in schools I was continually searching for the perfect tutor book or method for teaching beginner brass players. Now I have found the book that I was looking for! ... It is a complete course for individual and group teaching and it incorporates all that I believe is necessary to start and continue teaching beginner brass players ... ... In the high tech world of today children expect instant results at the press of a button - this method gives it to them! .. all in all it is an excellent method and Boosey & Hawkes are to be congratulated"
David Read, Brass Herald Magazine, Autumn 2003
