    "...Lawrance has selected his tunes carefully and takes tunes which stand the test of time - so even though some of the films, musicals and television programmes to which they relate are not current, I have found that children are generally familiar with them. Together with tunes that they definitely do know (James Bond, Chitty, Rudolph, Match of the Day and so on) a sense of security is given; and they have then been very ready to try out the renaissance, baroque and classical themes included, confident that they will be enjoyable and fun to play. The book is also available with an accompanying CD, and piano accompaniments. Technically it would work from a good grade 1 upwards: they have been very useful for the just-about-passed-grade-2 pupil, when, unbeknown to them, I have suggested pieces on a certain theme (compound time, flat key signatures and the like). Not quite the casual dipping suggested, but still much enjoyed. (And mums liked them too.)..."
