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"
(Winds, Summer 2002)

"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"
(MMA Journal, September 2003)

I am a full time woodwind teacher for Hampshire Music Service and I wanted to let you know that the Boosey Woodwind Method has made my life much easier! The children love it and it gets them playing rhythmically and musically from day one
