Alan Bullard is a pianist and composer, whose choral and educational compositions are performed widely. He has contributed many pieces to Piano Time and works as an ABRSM examiner. Janet Bullard has a busy and thriving piano teaching practice and more than 25 years' experience of teaching adults and children.
I love the Bullards' Pianoworks series and this is a collection that my pupils will wrench out of my hands! It includes the Toreadors' Song from Carmen and Don't Dilly Dally on the Way, beautifully arranged, clearly laid out and with background information on each piece. The book reinforces techniques introduced in Pianoworks 1 and 2 but can also be used by anyone. I have found these books particularly enjoyable for pupils who need to play tunes they know between the grades, music to play over the holidays when they are out of my grasp, or they make enoyable sight-reading practice and are fabulous pieces for concerts. * Frances Matthews, Music Teacher, September 2011 *
