For the stylish approach „Designed for the beginner, this collection of pieces provides stimulating performing material at the easiest possible level. The accompaniments (piano or CD) provide a good solid backing and will inspire the soloist to play with energy and enthusiasm. I have made much deliberate use of the repetition of phrases, as I feel that this is the best way for pupils to absorb new rhythms.„ James Rae
