“Fills a much-needed gap and celebrates wonderful diverse music. The music selection is superb and the additional resources available to use on a white board are going to save a huge amount of time.” – Karen Marshall, author of the Get! Set Piano Series, Collins Music and Primary School Music Lead

“The book is beautifully laid out and easy to digest, supported by eye-catching and quirky illustrations. There are graphic scores that accompany the pieces, offering a fun and visual element to the book while keeping music notation accessible. The graphic scores are depicted in several ways, from blocks of different heights that correlate to pitch, to illustrations of animals and even the use of numbers. It is a marvellous touch and an ingenious way of bringing music to life through a book, encouraging immersive learning.” – Eleanor Rashid for Music Teacher Magazine
