My granddaughter is really enjoying playing The Madhatter's Funeral March, she sometimes needs a little break from practicing for her Grade One.

This is an appealing selection of pieces which provides learners with a wide variety of styles and moods. What I particularly like is that it's not too childish. My student is 15 and instantly liked many of the pieces.
No bad points in my opinion.

This book and also the earlier Upgrade (0-1) are the most popular books among my pupils. They make the pupil sound like a jazz pianist without too much experience! They are wonderful for beginners.....I would recommend them to all piano teachers!

This is a fantastic set of pieces and a fun way to move children on from their first exam without it seeming too daunting. Anonymous

One of the most motivating "pieces" books I've come across, which both children & adults all enjoy. Each piece tells a story, and sets a mood which all can relate to. Get the children to draw a picture or write a story relating to Mad Hatter's Funeral March, Lazy Days, The Detective, or Rush Hour Dash. Anonymous
