          Excellent and challenging book of worthwhile tunes, if rather vexing to play! But that's what it's about - no gain without pain ...

          Excellent study book, covering many aspects of technique. I usually introduce it to my students after they've taken grade 4, but don't necessarily work through them all in order, saving some until after grade 5.
