Tunes for Ten Fingers Reviews
From now on I shall use Tunes for Ten Fingers for the very young beginners. It has much more to offer than any of its rivals. * Somerset Music Maker * The material in these books is excellent. The games, puzzles, illustrations and words of the songs highlight the fun aspect in learning the piano whilst being also educational, offering suggestions for playing, advice on hand position and how to practise . . . a breath of fresh air for teachers and pupils alike. * Piano Journal *
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.
