Hal Leonard Europe agrees worldwide distribution deal with Jef Neve for Start 2 Play project

Leading sheet music publisher and distributor Hal Leonard Europe has today announced that with immediate effect, it will begin distributing Jef Neve’s educational Start 2 Play piano series worldwide.

The addition of Jef’s music to its distribution ensures Hal Leonard Europe continues to grow its catalogue of educational resources and jazz repertoire, maintaining its leading position in the market.

Best known for his piano composing and performing around the world, Jef Neve has increasingly focused on music education in recent years, publishing three new progressive tutor books for piano: “Start”, “2” and “Play”.
