Piano Time Classics Reviews
The book itself is well laid out with clear print and a tough cover. No page turns are required for any of the pieces and fingering is added to help you along. This book should appeal to both adults and children, maybe those without a partciularly high level of skill who would neverthelesss like to build up a repertoire of pleasant and familiar pieces. Definitely worth a look. * Keyboard Review *
About Pauline Hall
Pauline Hall graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and then taught in schools and privately. Whilst living and teaching in Harrogate she felt the need for a piano tutor which made learning fun, and which progressed at the pace of her slowest learner. She started by writing little tunes in pupils' notebooks, and these formed the basis of Tunes for Ten Fingers; the Piano Time series developed from this.
