Enchanted World

Classic Children's Literature recreated for piano - UK Grades 1-3

The works of A A Milne have always had a very special place in my life.  It has been an absolute joy to recreate the world of Winnie-the-Pooh for young pianists, and to write about all my favourite characters which, I believe, have had such an influence on me from early childhood.

REVIEW - Piano Professional

The world of Pooh and Christopher Robin is evoked. From the call of the cuckoo in The Forest, to the happy hums of Nothing to do until Friday, the characters are vividly portrayed.  Baby Roo nearly jumps off the page; wise old Owl misspells Happy Birthday (wonky intervals) and Finding the North Pole has allusions to 'We're off to see the Wizard'.  Busy Day is fast, but in order to achieve it a child would conquer the technique.  It also sounds harder than it is, always helpful!
