Reviews

Her collection is ideal both for those learning piano mainly in the Scottish idiom and those who play other types of music and want to explore Scottish music

Joseph Peach for Living Tradition Magazine

Mary Strachan’ s delightful new book “ Leabhar a’ Phiàna - Simple Gaelic Tunes for the Piano” is great addition to our catalogue and I am sure it will be very popular especially for young people doing Mods and school ceilidhs.

West Highland Free Press

I am happy to commend this book, not only for students in the Highlands, but as a collection of very clever arrangements with fingering clearly marked. The book "comprises many of the lovely Gaelic waltzes, marches, strathspeys and schottisches which are very much part of the Scottish Dance Band Repertoire."
