Heather Hammond: Cool Piano - Book 2
Heather Hammond's Cool Piano series is lively and attractive, with plenty of variety of style, key and tempo. The melodies are strong and the harmonies adventurous. Each book has 12 pieces and the progressive books correspond to grades 1-6 standard. Children and young people will love the funky tunes, which contrast excitingly with more formal exam pieces.

Coming up roses
Five shillings and sixpence
Go for it!
It's time for action
Reaching for the stars
Round 'n' 'round in circles
Spook in my soup!
Tick tock tango
