„ 'Practising the Organ' is a terrific foray into the art of practicing and a helpful, informative technical 'how-to' resource. Although perhaps most valuable for aspiring organists and students, even mature players would find in its pages food for thought and help in figuring out why that difficult passage continues to be elusive ... How I wish I had this book during my formative years!"
The American Organist Magazine, July 2014

„Perhaps the most useful part of this book is the many practical exercises which follow, all taken from mainstream repertoire to illustrate and provide solutions from everything to integrating the thumb into group-of-four, thumb-crossings, trills, alternate hands, pedal exercises, coordination of hands and feet, polyphonic pedal, etc., etc – all emphasising the vital element of using the disceming ear. ... This book is an invaluable "console-side" resource for organists of all levels."
The Sydney Organ Journal 2/2014
