Dear Margaret,
Wow! Your compositions and your music is totally amazing! Rarely do you find a composer who has the ability to create such sublime and wonderfus music!
Your music creates within the listener, a sense of calmness, and a true feeling of well being,and at the same time, it provides rhythmic energy and joy! Rarely do we find this in contemporary music! You are to be congratulated on composing such wonderful music, which will stay with me forever!
Thank you for being a wonderful educator and mentor to myself and others! You have pioneerd the contemporary piano method to make teaching piano, fun, creative, and most of all enjoyable! I look forward to playing \"When Spirits Soar\" at your concert, as well as giving the Sydney performance of \"Binna Burra\" later in the year!
Thank you for being a great educator, composer, and an inspiration in general.
Best Wishes,
Samuel Cottell

As I was reading about your teaching method I noticed two links on your website are not working. They are \"Sign the guestbook\" and the \"Click here to read the interview\".
I was able to sign this guesbook by first viewing it.
Have a great day.

Gosh, Margaret, after more than eleven years of internet addiction, I wonder why this is the first time that I have come across these pages on the www showing your achievements.
I cannot drive between Anzac Parade and Bunnerong Road, without thinking of a house/studio, one street away, where I learnt to play the piano accordion, which proved so useful, during 37 years of teaching primary school. We´re both a little older now. My only recent public playing has been in the two Dutch retirement villages, for the visits of Sinterklaas (St Nicholas). But, at home, it still relaxes me and takes me back, all those years, playing on an accordion bought from your mum, causing me to usually explain that I´m playing on a ´woman´s accordion´, because Mrs Brandman told me so. :)
Best wishes!! (Was Joop/Joe Mul)

I always wanted to play piano and at the age of 42 I started. That was three years ago. I have passed gade 4 and am working on grade 5 theory.Your method has saved me from disappearing down some awful cul-de-sac..The problem with the grade system is it can paralyize you so you become too rigid in your playing and thinking. I was drawn to the piano because of a love of music and a desire to be more musical. I wanted to play for friends and family, have everybody gathered round a piano singing along! I think it would be possible to plough through the grades and completely miss the point of playing musically and enjoying the experience. You might master three pieces for the exam brillantly, but given something else to play and you could freeze up as if you´d never been near a keyboard.Your books dart the learner from formal practise of scales to improvisation to aural work and so you don´t get bored or stuck. I think you bring so many vital elements together and you also make it clear that without putting in the basics you will not move on. There is no quick fix for over-night success. The theory is beginning to make sense to me in a way it never did and my teacher is delighted with the work Iam now producing. I want to play classical pieces but I also want to play jazz/blues/ and improvise when I hear something I like. I think your method makes that possible. So keep up the good work and I shall keep playing! Thanks

looking for a newer way to teach students. Am frustrated with Alfred, Bastein, and all the others out there that keep us too "bound" to the book and dont allow kids/students to be playing music sooner...which is what they want. I am hoping this is what I´m looking for
