What Customers Are Saying

"I would like to say that after teaching piano for 16 years, your sight reading book is the BEST thing in the last 20 years of piano publications. I LOVE it and my son reads better than I ever did at the tender age of 10 years.
I have local teachers who are impressed with that book and also have moved over to the Blitz Musicianship and Theory series.
Thank you for your brilliant books."

- Tanya Brown, 'Bass n Blues Music Megastore' Taree and
Conservatorium Mid North Coast Board member

"I just wanted to say thanks for your great books on sight reading. After using them for 6 - 12 months, my students entered their AMEB exams. This is THE VERY FIRST TIME, all of them came out and said that the sight reading was EASY!!! I have also found that many of my students are now zooming along because, they have the confidence to learn more on their own at home.
Let me know ASAP when level 3 is available! Thank you from me and my students."

- Deanne Scott, QLD.
