Press Reviews

"...this set of pieces should encourage young players to perform cheerful, simple solos."
E.S.T.A., Spring 1992

"The editors have adopted a ‘slowly but surely’ approach and by gradually introducing new ideas with several examples to clearly illustrate each point, the student has the opportunity to consolidate newly acquired skills and build up a firm foundation for the years of music making ahead."
Music Business, March 1989
