Reviews

"Those who loved the film will surely appreciate this piano assortment of ten numbers. This excellent selection have all been transcribed for piano and voice with guitar chords, following the original music and keys as closely as possible." Melanie Spanswick, The Classical Piano & Music Education Blog. March 2017 "Beautiful arrangements of beautiful music. I was pleased to discover that the vocal line was not incorporated within the piano music, but was written out separately. Neither too difficult, nor 'dumbed down'." Mrs. V. M. Leonard , amazon.co.uk. February 2017
