“…you have done an excellent job of presenting your ideas. Teachers could use your materials to enhance their teaching…. I like all your visual aids and the written and coloring activities. They are clearly presented and easy to use.”
Dr. Jeanine Jacobson – clinician and author of Professional Piano Teaching.
“. . . a comprehensive approach to piano education. Volume 1 starts with the important concept of strength and coordination, which does not get a lot of attention in other method books. The pace is wonderful in a thorough teaching of the student of all the basics of playing an instrument. The book is well organized with large and clear print that helps to visualize and remember the information. I would strongly recommend this Series to young teachers and self-study adults.”
Dr. Anna Krendel – Past President and District IX Coordinator, California Association of Professional Music Teachers.
