Die Texte Hewig-Tröschers sind leicht lesbar, allgemein verständlich und in ihren praktischen Empfehlungen problemlos umzusetzen, etwa wenn sie mit wenigen Worten Empfehlungen gibt, wie eine Oberstimme bei Mehrstimmigkeit in einer Hand hervorgehoben werden kann. Auch der Klavierpädagoge liest die Anmerkungen der Herausgeberin durchaus mit Gewinn für den eigenen Unterricht. [Üben & Musizieren, 2016]

De serie houdt rekening met verschillende spelniveaus (...), uithoudingsvermogen (...) en wil twijfelaars niet afschrikken door een te groot gewicht van een volume (...) of een te druk tekstbeeld. Ook aan de portemonnee van de doelgroep is gedacht, want de serie is aantrekkelijk geprijsd. Kortom, alle voorwaarden zijn aanwezig, alle mogelijke duwtjes in de rug gegeven, nu is het de beurt aan de pianist zelf. Er is geen uitstel meer mogelijk. [Piano Bulletin, 2015]
