        The format and cover look good.
        The content was a little uninteresting. Some better known tunes would have been more enjoyable.

        London GB Piano teacher.
        Attractive easy to learn pieces which are excellent for sight reading and sound good when they are put together. They are very well written, with some chromatic harmony and I have used them over and over again.
        No, they’re great!

        London GB I'm a piano teacher.
        I use it all the time, my pupils love it. The pieces are well written/arranged and just use a few notes which are indicated at the start. They are great for improving sight reading because of this.

        Fun for two children to play together.

        This is a pretty good easy duet book. However, the pieces are all approximately the same level, it would help if it gradually got harder.

        These simple, quick to learn pieces make an ideal start to ensemble playing. Presentation is clear and appealing to young pianists.

        The pieces are varied and exciting for pupils of grade 1/2 standard. Both parts contain melody lines. Pupils of grade 2 standard may be able to sight read some of the easier duets. The pieces at the beginning are easier than the pieces at the end to give children a sense of achievemnent.

        The Chester series is always good for my pupils. Very pleased with this find and will be buying more to use with my beginner pupils, especially as they know some of the melodies.

        The perfect introduction to duets where both parts are suitable for students.

        Une superbe introduction aux 4 mains. Une vrai motivation pour les jeunes pianistes (1ère et 2nde année) pour jouer à 2. Le prof de piano de mon enfant l'a adopté sans hésiter.

        My 9 year old piano pupil has really enjoyed this book.It is great to use after learning a new piece and just having some fun with something easy to play.
