What they say
“an ideal way to introduce children to this invaluable skill”
“A thorough 75-page book ... Each section concludes with duets and accompanied pieces for ensemble sight-reading practice but if this is not possible there are enough solo exercises to justify the purchase... Here is an ideal way to introduce children to this invaluable skill.”
Daniel Edwards, Stringendo, the Journal of the Australian Strings Association, vol 29 no 2 2007
