Games and puzzles galore provide hours of fun at, and away from the piano, and are valuable built-in revision.
Each of the books in the series include catchy pieces in a range of styles, 'digital dodgems' and 'finger crunchers' provide focused study while 'technix boxes' give new information such as notes, musical markings and time signatures.
Each book contains a CD bursting with adventures, pieces, games and accompaniments.
