The following are a selection of genuine comments that customers have left after ordering:
"I just wanted to say 'Thank you' for this wonderful service. I downloaded your accompaniments to Brahms Violin Sonata no 1, Beethoven no12, and Schubert Sonatinas a couple of months ago - they have made my practice sessions so much more enjoyable and rewarding! So I'm now trying a few more to give myself some fresh ideas and experiences - as well as revising some old familiar tunes!"
"I just came across your site while searching for accompaniment for a clarinet student who needs accompaniment for an audition in a few weeks. Although I am a piano teacher, I just don't have enough time to learn the suite properly for her audition. What a life saver this is! The parts sound great and have a click "count off" which makes it very easy for the student to practice to. In the meantime, I can work on accompaniment to play live. So glad I found you! I am so relieved! The tracks are already downloaded and ready to go. Sound great."
"Thank you - impressed with playing and quality of the accompaniment. I shall look forward to playing along to Schumann and shall definitely use your web site in the future."
"I just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful flute repertoire you've covered on this site. I am having so much fun playing various intermediate level pieces 'with the piano' - it makes such a difference!"
"You are wonderful! So kind and helpful. Thank you so much!"
"Your accompaniments are very helpful! My 12 year old son plays clarinet to a very high level and my piano skills have now reached their limit... We couldn't manage without your downloads, thanks."
"I'm very very grateful you have solved my problem. You are very kind ,as usual with your customers. My sincerest congratulations !!!!"
"Thank you for download link. Piano perfomance is brilliant! These tracks will be a masterpiece of my collection for flute."
"I love your site and I am so happy that there is a place where we can get the accompaniments to so many amazing classical pieces. Thank you very much for this opportunity!"
"That's great Paul thank you so much!! I have a lot of pieces that I recorded myself via midi so with this I can now unify the sound of the piano, looking forward to get more pieces from you thanks again for the efficiency and the prompt response."
"thank you for your website and your work, which is lovely, and is a great help in proving my interpretation of the flute pieces that I am playing/working on."
"Thank you for the thoughtful recording. The attention to the details, esp the tempo markings, made it a pleasure to rehearse."
"Thank you very much, you’re really kind. I’ll talk about your website in my conservatory in Barcelona. It’s very useful for instruments like mine."
"Thanks for that Paul, I’ve downloaded all tracks with no trouble. I’ll be coming to your site for future auditions when I need an accompaniment track!"
"I just downloaded and listened to this. It is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much."
"Thank you so much for your kindness and understanding. I will definitely use your website for future accompaniments."
"Thank you so very much...this is wonderful..great job..Perfect tempo..."
"Thank you so much for your prompt reply. The links work fine now and have been downloaded. Previously, I purchased 3 pieces last year and your service never fails to amaze me."
"Thank you so much! I can not believe I was not aware of this amazing site. Being a high school teacher, it is hard to get enough pianist for our solo and ensemble events!"
"I’m delighted that you’re providing this service. I’ve placed my first order and though I haven’t yet played along with it, I really like the sound and playing and I think it will be a real help in practicing."
"Thank you very much, it worked perfectly ok. I appreciate your help very much and I am sure I will download more tracks from your excellent website!"
"Thank you for your help, now it works. Your accompaniments are great!"
"Your excellent piano accompaniments have been very helpful for me while practising."
"Just wanted to let you know that I was very happy with the track - initially I was concerned that it seemed a bit fast, but in fact it was great to rehearse with, and you put plenty of space into the solo violin areas - I have been through it 3-4 times, and it's really useful! Got to perform it in 2 weeks, and no time to organise a proper piano rehearsal..... I have recommended you to a student who is doing the Tchaik violin concerto in March."
"I purchased some yesterday and it worked really well. I got some quality practices today! Very helpful, thank you, and I am glad I found you online... I have a recital coming up in a couple of weeks... I am gonna to refer your site to my students..."
"Once again - I am here purchasing accompaniments from you. I find them absolutely marvellous to practice to. My rate of progression as a cello student has noticeably increased since I started using your accompaniments. Many, many thanks for starting this service."
"Brilliant! Everything now downloaded. Thank you very much. I am quite sure that I will be visiting again soon for additional selections as these are most helpful when working with students in my studio prior to recital and audition performances."
"thanks a lot, it worked, i was really worried, but now i have the tracks again. I really appreciate your professional way of working."

"Are you the lovely pianist? I so appreciate these recordings and am super glad you've created them and made them available."
"Thanks so much for this!! Such great customer service!!"
"Your site has the best accompaniment tracks. The tempos are spot on, and the students can follow them easily. I don't know what I'd do without your site. My students win so many contests and competitions because they are SO familiar with the accompaniment. Coachings with their live pianists go so smoothly and immediately to music making because they are not bogged down by rhythms, entrances, tempos, intonation, etc...they've already worked that all out with your tracks at home and in lessons."
"it's the first time I have used your brilliant website! And you have saved me hours of learning some piano accompaniments for my sons eisteddfod performances!"
"I highly enjoy your work and am looking forward to purchasing more of it. And again thank you very much for your help!"
"That is perfect. Thank you so much!!!! I really appreciate your help and time with this. I know where to come in the future if I need some more top quality accompaniments!"
"I am playing in a concert next weekend, where there will be no accompanist available to me. My violin teacher directed me to your wonderful website and it has been amazing to have access to something like this."
"Just wanted to say I am so pleased to have found your website, what a fabulous idea. I used to play the Dvorak Sonatina with my mother and I am so happy to be able to recreate memories of playing with her, thank you!"
"I'm an amateur violinist who studied very seriously when I was younger, I'm a huge fan of your accompaniments (especially all of the Brahms violin sonatas). Not only is practicing great fun, I feel that I know a piece much better for when I do get together with a live accompanist and play."
"Thank you very much. I have downloaded them sucessfully~ (xie xie, means thank you)!~"
"Mr. Gardner, Kreisler is beautiful! Thank you so much, that you had this fantastic idea with accompaniments!"
"But thank you so much for your fantastic service. It's hard to find this kind of customer service these days and just wanted to let you know It is very much appreciated."
"It is great that you have recorded these piano parts. My son has used them to practice for both NYO auditions and his diploma and has found having a piano part to play along and listen to before pairing up with his pianist really useful."
"Just want you to know how much we appreciate what you do to help young musicians."
"Near the future I will buy more MP3 files of piano accompaniments at your wonderful website."
"I thought I would just send a quick email thanking you for these wonderful backing tracks! Finding this site really saved me! :D I'll definitely use this site again."
(JP, New Zealand)
"Congratulations for your work. I bought several accompaniments and I like them a lot!"
"Just a quick note to say thank you for your sensitive and musical (and accurate!) accompaniment tracks. I'm a professional violinist and this has breathed new life into my home practice. My only regret is that I didn't find you sooner."
"Thank you for wonderful recordings of many piano-accompaniments. We've been your fans ever since we found your site. My 11 years old son, who are playing violin, has benefitted alot by practising with your recordings."
"Everything went very smoothly in the downloading and I just wanted to congratulate you on a great library and terrific service! I hope you are enjoying huge success - and just for the record, we are based in Mexico so this really is a world-wode service!"
"I must say I really love playing along to your accompaniment backing tracks! They keep me sane in between performance projects. Keep up the awesome work!"
"Thank you for a fabulous accompaniment site."
"Thank you for such prompt and efficient service."
"Btw. I wanted to mention that I find your work very valuable - the recordings are of very good quality and they saved me in the past when I had to prepare for performances of Suite Italienne by Stravinsky with short notice. I don't think I could do quite so well without them, so thank you."
"Great job on your tracks, by the way. I may never use a live accompanist again (just kidding). Seriously, though, the recording quality, tempo, accuracy, and skill is outstanding. It is a great idea offering various arrangements as well. I wish you success with your website."
"Again thanks in advance. And congrats for your tracks, they are great."
"I found your website while surfing music site. I am absolutely impressed by the high quality of the piano accompaniments. I want to thank you as well as where the pianists who have interpreted these works because it does not look like midi file. With my acknowledgements and congratulations."

"I'm loving practicing with the piano accompaniments that I've downloaded so far---it's so great for intonation work as well as learning the piano part."
"Thanks for this...all downloaded and working great.
Looking forward to using it in my teaching this week."
"I love your site. Thank you for your service."
"I just wanted to thank you for this wonderful and helpful website. It's a great pleasure to practise with " a real pianist" rather than some "dead" MIDI file and I'm very happy to pay for your work. Furthermore I was delighted to find a few rare pieces (at least rare in Germany...) like Paul Reade's Suite for Clarinet. I play clarinet, violin and flute and it's marvellous to find music for each of my instruments."
"Thank you so much for the great piano accompaniment for Bruch. I never thought there is such service. Now my daughter enjoys playing her violin together with the piano."
"Such a great website, I wish i had found it sooner."
"I just want to say Thank You for your accompaniment tracks, I discovered your site this past fall and purchased many of your cello tracks since...I have never had enjoyed practicing as much as recently. I have been going and playing for fun at nursing homes and at hospice houses, it really makes a difference playing with piano. I will continue to recommend your site to all my musician friends."
"I have auditions coming up and it makes memorising the Mozart so, so much easier and more fun too!"
"Hi Paul - I just want to say how wonderful this website is. It is such a great resource and I have been using it with my students for the past few months when I discovered it, and plan to keep doing so. This is just so great! Thank you!"
"Thank you so much. You're a legend! That's perfect."
"Thank you very much for this beautiful accompaniment!"
"Well, you made my day. I am excited to start practicing with the beautiful accompanyment!"
(KW, Hong Kong)
"Well, thank you for doing this. It is wonderful and you play very well. It is nice to be able to play these pieces with accompaniment again - and whenever I want to."
"Thanks for your help. It will help me to prepare my upcoming auditions!"
"I love your website! I think it's an amazing place to get high quality piano accompaniments"
"I'd like to thank you for your website! I purchased your cello accompaniments (Haydn D major cello concerto and Saint-Saens A minor cello concerto op.33) and they are really high quality both musically and technically and carefully thought."
"They are such a great practise tool and very high quality!"
"Thank you for these Shostakovich recordings - they're very high quality and have helped me greatly."
(TL, Hong Kong)
"Many thanks for your fantastic service."
"I have been so pleased with the accompaniment recordings available on your website. They've helped me work on solo literature without the need to hire a pianist and having rehearsal and performance tempos makes working through difficult sections much easier. Thank you!"
"Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful resource. I am so pleased to have found your website (as I didn't realise such an idea existed). I know I will thoroughly enjoy rehearsing with an accompaniment."
"My playing on this piece with your accompaniment has already improved over many of the sections - it has definitely made me aware of places I was counting incorrectly and/or changing the tempo."
"Everything worked perfectly. I had no problems downloading the tracks."
"I cannot express how happy I am to have received these exceptionally fine accompaniments. I had never hoped to be able to perform again (even privately) the beloved Franck Sonata. This morning I played the final movement, and it was marvelous. If it is you who are the pianist, felicitations!
Congratulations on such great playing and on your wonderful endeavor."
"Thank you very much for the commitment you have put into recording so many beautiful classical accompaniments. I play the flute and I use your accompaniments a lot in my every-day practice."
"With your accompaniments, I have my own patient pianist right here in my home, willing to play as often as I wish!!"
"Paul you are an absolute star!!"
"I'm looking forward to practice with these tracks. I will certainly recommend your good service to other amateur instrumentalists :-)"
"Thank you. You're a life saver, and a beautiful pianist. I just went through the Schumann Sonata several times today. Amazing, wonderful. Thank you so much for all you do!"
"I use your backing tracks for violin, viola and oboe all the time. They are brilliant for practice purposes, but I have also used them for recitals in schools and care homes. The tempi always seem just right (the practice tracks being a bonus when learning new pieces). I have enjoyed using these well recorded tracks so much that I have worked my way through many of the major sonatas as well as other shorter pieces. I have never been disappointed with the tracks and find them to be far superior to many similar products available commercially. The recent half price offer inspired a rush to increase my ever-growing collection. Many thanks! Please do keep adding to the library."
"I just wanted to say that you have developed a great site! It's a fantastic idea that is both helpful and inspiring. I've tried (-another company-) before, but the experience of playing with an orchestral recording just seems sloppy or awkward for some reason. Your method of recording MIDI to ensure tempo and pitch consistency leads to a much better result.
I personally find that it's much more inspiring to practice with actual accompaniment versus trying to use one's imagination. I usually get bogged down with repeating certain sections of a piece or wind up playing at too slow a tempo. The accompaniment, played through headphones from my laptop, really keeps me on track. Kudos on a great idea!"
"thank you for the quick reply. I just ordered several pieces and looking forward for the download links. Enjoy your accompaniment very much by the way."
"Thank you Paul. Its lovely and fun to practice with."
"I have bought almost all your viola accompaniments, and love them!!"
"Many thanks Paul. Love your piano accompaniments!!! They are such a help with my cello practice."
"that worked perfectly :) I wanted to thank you for providing these accompaniments, I'm a former cello-student, and finding an accompanist without having any particular goal in mind is difficult where I live, so playing along with these tracks have really meant a lot to me:) "
"Having your piano accompaniments is such a great help to my teaching. I cant manage piano parts of that level and the modern day classroom teachers in my school are not up to that standard either"
"Thanks so much for that - I think that this is a great site, I'll definitely be back for more! It's really difficult if you can't get a regular pianist and this helps so much.
Keep up the great work!"
"Thank you for your assistance. Now I know where I can go for this quality accompaniments, will be back for more soon."
"Download worked fine! Many thanks - a really good quality accompaniment to support me learning this beautiful piece from the flute repertoire."
"I've been using your site for a couple of years now, and I'd like to say thank-you for making my teaching job an easier place, and also how lovely it is to have accompaniments on tap for non-exam pleasure too. I wish I'd had this resource when I was learning in the 80s...."
"Thank you so much, I was able to download all the tracks succesfully. You are very kind."
"I have gone through your accompaniments and I really wish to thank you for posting these.. your considerations for the musicality and tempo are really good."
(AR, Costa Rica)

"Just wanted to say Thanks! Finally found your website and I'm overjoyed! I've been looking for some accompaniments for ages to have on my ipad"
"I really!!!enjoy your work. Changes my daily life: I play violin - I have an extremely good pianist to play with, but I really need to practice. Your files are the solution. Used the Brahms No 2 violin sonata extensively. Really works! You have chosen a perfect balance of musical precision/ neutrality and musicality! Keep it up. PS just ordered Beethoven x 3 and Mozart .."
"Can I just say how impressed I have been with your website and your service!! Will definitely be recommending it to my friends!"
"Well! We were so glad to find your site. My daughter had an audition...so she used the CD she burned from this site.
She got the scholarship!
Thanks for this! And now I know I can go here for more accompaniments so that my girls can practice at home with it. This was a GOD send!
I will tell others! May your business be successful....."

"Thanks Paul! Your service is unparalleled!"
"I just wanted you to know that I think the service you offer through these accompaniments is superb. I find the accompaniment, along with the Amazing Slow Down software, is a great aid to interpreting the music as well as learning the piece. Many thanks for your hard work in this area. I have the Yamaha Clavinova and so can appreciate the time it must have taken you to create and edit these recordings. I shall certainly be returning for more accompaniments in the future."
"Thanks very much, and thanks again for the awesomely wonderful piano accomp!!!"
"Brilliant! Thank you! You are a life saver. I may need to ask for further modifications regarding the cadenza part. If I do, I'll have to bother you again.
Once again, thank you so much! You're awesome for making such a useful website."
"Thanks for providing a brilliant service! I will certainly pass on your site to my students and colleagues."
"I have just purchased several more of your piano accompaniments for flute. The service you offer is just superb and helps so very much when learning new repertoire. So a huge thank you!"
"I lOVE your site! The piano playing is great too! Thank you for your service!!"
"I have just received your accompaniment to the Strauss cello sonata and it found itself a home in ITunes without any prompting from me. Amazing.
Thank you. I am sure this will make a big difference to my practice"
"Thank you so much! Would definitely recommend your site to every music lover that I know!"
"wow Paul-you are an absolute Angel!!!! Thanks so much!!!"
"Thanks for the files! This is my second purchase, I really enjoy using your files, they are great fun, and beautifully played; good preparation for when I might actually perform any of these pieces."
"I have received the order, and I am really happy that I did decide to buy them from you!"
(NB, South Africa)
"Thank you for your prompt reply! I am over the moon with those, thanks."
"I order several tracks from you just 1-2 weeks ago. I was so delighted to find your website. What a pleasure for me to work all my violin repertoire with your accompaniment."

"Thank you for your work in providing this wonderful assistance to make practicing so much more enjoyable. I am very pleased with the quality of the accompaniments - the performance and the sound."
"The music worked perfectly! You have a great sense of piano expression that adds to the artist's renditions.
Thanks for your talents. We will keep you in mind for accompaniment practicing on future songs."

This little piano part is very helpful. The orchestra I play in asked me to learn Viktor's Tale with one week's notice. There wasn't time to order the piano part with Christmas in the middle of the week! I have been learning it with your track. Very grateful, and your attachment seems to work just fine."
"Thank you for your help. The accompaniment is great!"
"I just discovered your site last month in a fit over not knowing any pianists who know could accompany me on a regular basis- it's made all the difference in the world to me! As a violinist, I really do depend on a piano to be there for much of my repertoire, so THANK YOU for making these recordings available- and for reasonable prices!!"
"I told my daughter in the morning that there has arrived a Christmas present from a gentleman living in Britain. My daughter surprised and loved to listen to it with a smile on her face before going to school, and promised to listen again and practice at home after school for her art festival next week.
Thank you so much. My family really appreciate it.!
(JA, South Korea)
"Thanks so much Paul. This is an excellent website and excellent service."
"I just bought two Mp3s from your wonderful website."

"Thank you very much for your service. It is very very useful."

The quality of the recordings is always excellent and they have greatly improved my cello playing as well as providing me with countless hours of enjoyment."
"That was really fantastic of you to send me the viola accompaniment MP3 file; nice job!! I didn't think you'd actually be able to help me in time, but now I've switched back to my viola because of it and I think I've gotten enough practice that I'll be playing at a wedding with it tomorrow...Thanks again for your thoughtfulness!"
"To an amazing pianist and the owner Supervisor Mr. Paul Gardener,
Hello and thank you very much for sending me your piano accompaniment CDs. I received them on this past Saturday afternoon, June 16, 2012. I had no idea that you were the actual person who played the piano… Wow, I must say that you play the piano so beautifully with such a clear tempo. You know that my previous piano accompanists have been those who have won various piano competition awards, including from that - international Tchaikovsky Piano Competition… and some have been the piano accompanist for top music school graduates and for their students as well… But your piano accompanist sounds so superb and lovely, and it sounds much more better than them even when they are on those CD disks... I am sure that you hear it all the time but it’s like, when I play your piano accompaniment CDs, your music is so alive…and it feels like you are playing right next to me. How is it that you play the piano just like how I want my piano accompanists to play the piano along with me, when you did not even rehearsed with me? All I can tell you is that I was so impressed that I could not pause your music CD, even after just hearing one piece… I just could not turn it off… You know it’s not even about playing with my instrument, but it instantly made me sing along with your CD until the last piece, as I couldn’t stop… So, thank you so much for making these piano accompaniment CDs as it is so helpful to me and for others."
"We'll be sure to tell all of our Australian trumpeting friends :D "
"You are a star. Thank you so much."

"Thank you very much, now is perfect!!"
"What a fantastic service! Thanks so much. Just googled Poulenc plus piano accompaniment just to see if anything turned up. What a pleasant surprise to find your website."

"I'm delighted with the piano accompaniment I purchased. It makes a huge difference to how I play!"
"Thank you for the follow-up on our purchase. Your track is beautiful and just what we needed. We have used the track with my daughter's private lesson violin instructor and she was impressed and highly complementary of your recording. (And she is a discerning professional musician! I actually enjoy your piano piece all by itself.) In addition, your site is very well organized and easy to use.
We will be sure to recommend your website to others and it will be the first place that we check when we need accompaniment music in the future."

"I'm really looking forward for more accompaniments. Thanks a lot for sibelius concerto and Mozart vl-concerto. The tracks were very helpful for my auditions"
"Many thanks for the lovely accompaniment track - I received the link, it worked perfectly, the download was simple and the track is flawless, and it's perfectly clear where you have truncated the piano solo in two places, and will not hinder my daughter from learning her entrances at all. Many thanks, your efforts will help her to prepare before she meets the accompanist before her recital, and best wishes,"
(GW, USA) - the truncations mentioned here refer to cuts that I make in certain concerto recordings where tuttis last a long time
"Thanks a lot Paul - great service!"

"Really pleased with the backing tracks. Was just enjoying playing my A clarinet to them last night.
Played through the right stereo equipment the tracks sound superb!"
(GL, New Zealand)
"As always you are the best! Thank you for your kindness. I enjoy your work so much. Your musical sense makes playing the sonata repertoire very satisfying. Although I have a friend who plays with me regularly, he just can't come close to the standard of your playing."
"I was so excited when I found your company's site. It's like a dream product for me as I can't find any similar service in my country."
"Hello Paul, once again, I want to thank you for your awesome site which is so helpful for us!! Thank you!"
"I've just happened on your site and wish I'd found it earlier- very useful for teaching, rehearsing and performing!!!!!! I shall be a regular visitor!!"
"Thank you very much for your quick reply and for sending me the mp3. Your website is very useful and most appreciated."
"I am LOVING your tracks! If only these had existed when I was at music college..."
"Anyway, I think your website is a fantastic thing and I'll make sure to reccomend it."
"I have just played your new recording through and it's absolutely spot on - excellent! Many thanks for your efforts - I will be making a donation."
(AB, UK) - after making a new recording at a different tempo
"Your accompaniments are really nice. I’m so glad I found you!"
"Your business is such a good idea! I had just asked a friend to make a recording for me of the accompaniment, and then I thought, perhaps such a thing exists...so I googled 'piano accompaniment de falla danse espagnole' and found you! Thank you. Love the practice version."
"Thanks for your kind immediate response. I really love your piano accompaniments. Fantastic !"
"I really appreciate your website and wonderful piano accompniments."
"Can I just tell you how excited I am to have been able to download a copy of the piano accompaniment to the Berkeley Sonitina!! I first played this piece for my A Levels (2002), and since then I haven't been able to do it properly as no one I know can play the piano part. Now I can play all three movements back to back and I love it!! Just need to get a bit more practice in."
"I am sorry that only tonight I had a chance to play with new version. Sound great, timing is perfect. I really enjoyed playing. My wife also likes it. You are big time musician."
"I really like your site – a friend of mine has bought some cello accompaniments from you recently and pointed me in your direction."
"I am so happy that I found your website! Thank you so very much for the excellent MP3 file. I needed to practice the Bach Double Violin Concerto in D minor. The practice track is very helpful. I am impressed with the accuracy and also the ease in downloading and purchase. Very easy to navigate. Thank you again"
"I just thought I'd email you to say that the accompaniments I downloaded a couple of weeks ago have been great - they really do inspire my pupils and me to practice at home! Thank you for your expertise."
"I cannot thank you enough. The quality is fantastic. The download to Media Player and the burn to CD worked smoothly and I could not be happier. I was amazed to have your return email back on the same day and not just any day but Sunday. Thank you so much."
"Thank you SO much again! I just spoke with my son's teacher and he is thrilled! We will keep your website for future use. BTW: the music is beautiful! Thanks Paul!"
"Thank you so much for sending those. I appreciate it. Your site has been a lifesaver during concert preparation!"
(WG, South Africa)
"Thank you so much, Paul. I really do find this extremely helpful! I will pass it onto my friends."
"hello...i am the lady to whom you gave a slower version of chopins first movement...i just purchased the largo which is so awesome i wanted to tell you...also, i am a member of cello chat (internet cello society) and i am going to post your site info on it...i have been thinking of how i could thank you for doing that and since i have purchased the the swan which is also awesome ....the best way is to post your site info on cello chat..."
"They sound fantastic! great speeds/rubato/pitch - everything! if only I had facebook or a blog - at any rate I will tell my friends"
"One of my members from the UK sent me the link to your wonderful site. I love what you are doing. I think there is an enormous need for accompaniments with real piano! We violinists have a lonely time practicing solo, and having the accompaniment is such a useful tool to develop intonation and musicality."
"really appreciate your service of piano accompaniments. It is a very useful tool and saves a lot on fees for a live accompanist to practice with."
(CH, New Zealand)
"Thanks for these great accompaniments. As you can see, I purchased the Sibelius violin concerto accompaniment. Its great."
"These are excellent - thank you so much for taking the time and trouble."
"wow! this is amazing, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!"
"it works fine. So no need at all to pay back, I wouldn't have had accepted that generous offer anyway. Great service, we'll come back in the future and we'll recommand you in the school."
"I recently purchased, downloaded and copied to CD your accompaniment to Haydn's Trumpet Concerto for my son (aged 14) who is doing the 3rd Movement for his Grade 8 trumpet exam. He was chuffed to bits when I gave him the CD last night. It will make a huge difference to his practice sessions! Thank you!"
"Thank you very much for sending me the files. I already completed my downloads. I like the accompaniments and I'm satisfied with your products. I'm planning to purchase from you again soon and tell my friends about your site. Thanks..."
"I would like to leave a testimonial on your website. I purchased the 2nd and 3rd movements of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor for my son last night. This morning he practiced for the first time to it.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited he is. Instead of giving me a hard time about playing parts over, he is more than happy to, so long as we use the piano accompaniment. It is helping him to keep time and to play his notes better.
Thank you. You are a godsend."
"Thank you so much for the quick reply! It actually worked through PayPal with my Visa. I'm so happy to have this accompaniment available for my student now.
This is a wonderful idea and a great service for music teachers. It makes it so much fun for students to learn this way. I can also import the MP3 to my Amazing Slow Downer and adjust the tempo to anybody's abilities. I will look for more tunes on your website soon! "
"Once again, thanks for the opportunity to use your files, which are really great!"
"I'm sure I'll be contacting you in the future again since I'm planning on increasing my repertoire!"
(AL, South Africa)
"Wonderful site! Wish this kind of service was available ten years ago when I was at music college!!!"
"Thank you so much for re-recording those movements with repeats. That is really wonderful! I do appreciate your extra effort."
(AA, New Zealand)
"I didn’t expect you could give me such a surprise ? Recording two more versions for me. What an impressive reply. We tried it and it works well. Since my son did practice with the fast / first piece, he is more accustomed to the 104 beats piece. Thank you so much."
"Really enjoying these clarinet accompaniments, can't wait for you to do the Stamitz! The slower practice versions have been especially valuable."
"Thank you so much for informing me. I will surely purchase it very soon."

"I just wanted to email you to say thanks for doing what you do! I am a flute teacher in Gloucester and came across your web address whilst registering on musicteachers.co.uk. I will be purchasing some of your accompaniments in the very near future as an aid to my teaching and studying and am so grateful that I found you! I will pass on your web site address to all my music friends."
"Thanks so much. Your website is a godsend! My daughter has a practical clarinet exam today and her accompanist disappointed her at short notice - right before the exam. I stumbled onto your website while browsing the net out of desperation! She practised with the mp3s and sounded A-okay and ready for her exam today.
Thanks once again."
(EvN, South Africa)
"Many thanks for the backing track. I am playing this at a friends wedding."
"Thank you so so very much! You are awesome! I can't imagine what it would be like to play with you in person. :) The tracks have been very useful, and fun to practice and play along as well. God bless you and I'll buy again in the future. :) "
"Je viens d'acheter l'accompagnement de la sonate pour flute de L. Berkeley. Je suis très satisfait."
"truly wonderful !!"

"I have just purchased Mozart Andante in C from you and I'm so pleased with it. It was so easy - great having a Paypal option too - and I'm thoroughly happy with the recording. Now I can proceed to play the piece for a recital at the school in June. So thank you! I would definately shop with you again"
"Thanks to you I'll be able to practice my flute, and I hope I'll graduate because I have an exam in a month. Thank you very much for creating this website it's very nice, and thanks for your help."
"This is a Christmas Present.....And a really good one! Thanks for your help."

"This is a fantastic website and so easy to locate the pieces I wanted. I will recommend you to my students and colleagues."
"You don't know how happy you make me !! The tempi indicated were perfect! The last two weeks I've been studying the Albinoni with your accompaniment and my teacher was very surprised that I played the rythms so well....I told him about your site"
"Thanks very much for getting back to me, it's always great to actually get an email from the real person behind a website. It makes it more human and I'm sure it's all part of good customer service."
"Just downloaded the Elgar violin sonata as MP3, many thanks. Very nice playing!"
"Dear Paul, you just have no idea how thrilled I am to have your tracks!!!!
The tracks are really really well done, and I feel like a kid in a candy store having them."
"Thank you so much, I am very grateful! I've been back on your website and will be downloading some more material shortly (I was also really impressed with The Amazing Slow Downer, that will definately make my life a little easier!)"
"Thank you very much for the Mathias flute sonata which was blissfully easy to order from your website.

(RC, Spain) - after I added Beethoven's Violin Concerto
"First of all let me thank you for your great work. I just discovered your site and can’t wait to try some of the pieces."
"I am so pleased with the quality of the accompaniments. They are easy to work with and I am very satisfied."
"It should be exactly what I need to play along with. At first listen or 2, I think it has a better sound quality then a few other that I have that were recorded with a lesser piano."
"Thank you for this quick answer. It is perfect! And thank you so much for your availability and all what you do!"
"I will definitely be buying the accompt. and will tell my daughter's teacher it is available so she can tell other pupils too.
Best wishes and thanks again."
"I must say I think your accompaniments are excellent. The playing is musical without being too "interpreted" and the clicks in rhythmically doubtful passages are inspired."
(CH, USA) note - I have recently revised the places I insert clicks to try and minimise them as far as possible)
"Yet again, you've produced wonderful accompaniments!"
"Thank you so much for doing this for us. I appreciate it so much and I hope that you have many sales for this piece."
(JW, Australia) - after recording Faure's Pavane as a request

"I managed to download all of the Rachmaninoff Vocalise backing onto my laptop and it is brilliant from start to finish. Now all I have to do is LEARN it!"
"All arrived safely many thanks. This is an excellent idea and service! My daughter plays flute and as she progressed onto more complex pieces it became increasingly problematic to find an available accompanist who was able to play the piano parts. Your service solves the problem superbly. Your page is now bookmarked and I will certainly use your service again!"
"THANK YOU SOOOO, SO MUCH!!! :-)"

(ON, Faroe Islands)

(TF, USA) - I myself am the pianist on these tracks :)

"thanks for that. Everything works fine now. Keep on the good job!"
"I do want to say, what an awesome idea I had been looking for something like this for a long time. I thought the piano would sound like some computer midi trash sound, but it sounds like an actual piano. I love the accompaniments. They are absolutely great to practice with. "
"Thank you so much for pointing this out - and for your honesty! The accompaniment track is a great help to my son who at the moment is only looking at the final movement of the sonatina."
(EG, UK) - after I realised a customer had paid for a whole sonata while only requesting one movement, and so I refunded the difference
"Hi Paul! I'm back again for more! I have successfully performed the Premiere Rhapsody last week. Thanks again for a great accompaniment."

Thank you for your brilliant idea....not to mention your brilliant playing! I'm so glad your website turned up in my google search. You can be sure that I will tell my musician friends about your service and I'm sure I'll use it again, too.

I have been thrilled with your site. It makes so much more material available for use with my students, who might only be able to meet with our staff accompanist for a rehearsal or two. I can fire up the files on my office computer, and set the speed anywhere I need to with the Amazing Slow Downer.
I will drop a word to friends across the country as well and let them know about your work. I am so happy with the service and your performances that I have no problem promoting your site!"
