Take Your Bow
Dancing the Tango is primarily an exercise in harmonics, but it’s so well put together that ‘really fun’ and ‘can we do that again’ were the responses when I tried the book out on a pupil…
I like Hazy Days with its emphasis on bow division and the counting of its six-beat tie at the end.
This new series is highly recommended.
Anne Inglis for The Strad November 2018
This series comprises an excellent selection of pieces for beginner string players either as solo or group pieces.
The pieces sound great, and are also set out really clearly, one piece to each page.
I used them in my mixed beginner string group and everyone enjoyed the imaginative tunes and great accompaniments which are not too challenging for busy string teachers.
I will certainly use these pieces regularly, and have not hesitation in recommending them highly.

I’ve been really, really impressed with the new Trinity theory exams - the workbooks are fantastic, and the concepts are introduced at a lovely pace, very easy for kids to manage Grade 1 theory while they are working on Grade 1 practical.

String Note Books:
Practical Theory for Beginners
The layout of the books is particularly appealing. The staves are very large - much bigger than the normal size used for beginners' music - making them inviting to look at…
There are also some great opportunities for students to think creatively…
They are well thought out…. and it's all valuable practice for beginners as they set out to understand the building blocks of music.
Catherine Nelson for The Strad April 2013
One of the things that makes this book so useful is that it links writing to reading to playing/hearing…. well worth considering for all beginner string players.

A First Viola Note Book
The pace of the book is ideal for a young child…. A very good book that I hope will get the use it deserves.
