Music Books

Here are some of the music books that I recommend and use regularly. I have put the Amazon links, which give me a small commission if you buy after clicking on them – it doesn’t cost you any extra but helps me. Other suppliers are available of course, and in the interests of helping the planet don’t forget that charity shops are often a good source of pre-loved copies.
