“This game is GREAT!” Violet (age 7)

“Can we order even MORE please?!” – Forsyth Music Shop

“This game is BRILLIANT! So far we have only played the standard game, just being me and the husband, but we love it! It’s going to be great to play the bonus games (3+ players) over Christmas with my elderly parents, who can struggle with complicated game rules, but the rules are straightforward and easy to follow, and you don’t have to have any prior knowledge of composers to play it. These will be coming with me on my next gig when we have a long break!” -Liz Heyes-Lundie

“This deck of 36 brightly-coloured cards features classical and jazz composers, as well as those better known for their film/tv scores, plus instructions for three games which can be enjoyed by all ages from 4 upwards.  women and people of colour are well represented and the cards are beautifully designed with original artwork by Margit van der Zwan.  A great gift for children to encourage a love of music and increase their knowledge of musical terms, genres and figures, or an ideal stocking filler for any music-lover.” – Present Indicative

Family fun

“Played all three games today with my in-laws. We loved it!!! Many discussions about who the lesser known composers were with a view to checking them out on the internet later. Mat liked Quartet the most as he enjoyed having to retain information about who had what cards. Dorothy liked the quick fire Decomposing Composer. Barry was not impressed that we made him do a forfeit for being a Crotchety Crotchet! All in all a fun afternoon. The cards are beautifully designed of course, instructions are concise and well thought out. Bravo Margit!” – S. Elliot

camping games

“I think the overall card game is amazing“ – Reuben (age 8)

“I had my regular games night on Friday and we played the Quartet Game for the first time and loved it! I especially love how bright and juicy the colours are and of course your beautiful illustrations. It was a fun game and we’ll be trying out the other variations next time!” – C. Crosley

“What I like is that it opens up more listening opportunities and discussions on different levels for different students. I teach piano and violin (mostly piano), and it gives them the chance to hear music that they wouldn’t normally listen to.” – R. Tute

“I’m sure the game [will] be a huge hit” – J. Iddon

“We love the Quartet game! Especially the Wigs category! Katy and I have played it several times but I’ve had to ban it while eating because it nearly made us late the other day. I love the representation of women. It’s a great thing you’ve created. The best was when a bit of Handel came on the radio and I could say to K “this is a wig”!!!” – R. Little

Quartet composer game

“How could you not want this game?“ – Sophia (age 10

“Excellent Xmas pressie for lots of people I know. Makes the perfect after dinner game!” – T. Johnson

“We played all 3 games with the Quartet cards and loved each and every one of them! Great fun was had by the kids collecting sets, trying to work out who had which cards and attempting to pronounce the composer’s names! I’m also going to use these cards as an educational tool – ask my students to pick a random card and then listen to one of their compositions. Thank you Margit for designing these beautiful cards!” -Melissa F-W
