PIANO JUNIOR - press reviews
"The careful introduction of all aspects of music notation is a standout feature of these books, and to my mind Heumann has provided one of the best child-friendly introductions to reading music that I have seen... Piano Junior has in many respects raised the bar, in some ways perhaps even setting a new standard by which piano courses for children will be judged." - PIANODAO.COM
