"All to often there seems to be a 'great gulf fix'd' between those who plunge through keyboard skills with intimidating ease and those who flounder in their wake. For the flounders there often seems nothing for it but q gritting of teeth whilst they pursue a sort of obstacle race without any of the prizes of artistic satisfaction. It seems to me that Laura Campell's ideas in this book will be for many a liberation - not a liberation from working and thinking, but a liberation of the imagination, so that the simple everyday tasks of accompaniment, for instance, can take on a personal creativeness, however recalcitrant the fingers may be at the outset. But the book is not only for the less able; it should stimulate the extempore faculties of all, and help save them from slavery to printer printed accompaniments." Professor Ivor Keys
