"...is a collection of short pieces, all really well known tunes. This is a perfect book for those pupils who are just past the beginner stages. Somewhere here you will find a tune even the most recalcitrant pupil will want to have a go at...There are lots of books like this out there but I think this is excellent. The tunes are short, well presented, with appropriate dynamics and articulation...An excellent book that easily wins my vote"
