“It's fantastic! Seems like a piano teachers’ dream!”
Lizzie Moore, London College of Music Exams, July 2017

“In The Intermediate Pianist, Karen Marshall and Heather Hammond have produced a rare gem of a piano tutor series.  What is so special about these books is the way students are encouraged to be creative learners, as well as accomplished performers. This is no prescriptive series of exercises. From the outset, the authors enable exploration: styles and techniques are combined in helping the intermediate pianist develop a rich tapestry of experience.  Not only is there something for everyone here, the diversity of the musical repertoire found in these books has at its core a real consideration of how music works - in addition to how it can be performed.  
Marshall and Hammond show the common and unusual elements of different musical styles. In doing so, they are setting pianists up to be flexible, adaptable musicians who can go beyond performing examples of music into a deeper and more knowledgeable understanding of what they are playing. Not only will this approach bring a great joy of discovery, it will help students on their journey to master new challenges.  Being distinctive is an important element in successful music making today. Marshall and Hammond provide the core techniques to help, and make it huge fun in the process.”
