          Ideal for teaching, especially if your piano-playing is doubtful. There is a very wide range of song styles and types and so choosing songs for pupils is relatively easy. This is true of all the song books in this range.

          Book was exactly what I wanted

          All of the books in the range are excellent. At this early stage the songs manage to have plenty of substance with great characters, stories and atmospheres for students to convey. They arrangements are all beautiful.

          The children love many of these songs.
