‘The Piano Star series is full of vibrant, contrasting and well-crafted solos and duets for the beginner pianist. Well done ABRSM - this will quickly become a popular addition to early piano lessons. I am certainly looking forward to using it with some of my pupils.’
Sally Cathcart, Musician, Teacher and Director of The Curious Piano Teachers
'Children will be immediately hooked by the new series, Piano Star. The wide variety of attractive and accessible pieces is sure to capture their imaginations and have them running to the piano to try them out!'
Aisling Greally, piano teacher and co-compiler of the series alongside David Blackwell
'It’s great to see the clear layout, big notes and engaging colourful illustrations in all three of them [Piano Star books]. My pupils have loved them. Some have been appropriated for their Prep Test own-choice, but others have just been used for progress and fun.'
