This is a new music book this year and so far, I am very pleased with it and my students love it. As a voice teacher with many years of experience, it has always been a challenge to find a collection of songs with enough variety to appeal to students of varying levels of vocal experience. So far, this book satisfies on so many levels. There are songs for both boys and girls and with enough music selection to progress from early beginner to low intermediate.
Recommend this book for children middle school and younger.
The CD is also very good. Unlike so many other accompaniment CD's the pianist wasn't afraid to nuance and emote, rather than just play the notes. For an unorchestrated CD, you will be pleased.
WATCH OUT... Check CD IMMEDIATELY upon arrival to ensure it's not damaged in any way. I have received numerous orders from Amazon and the majority have been as ordered. However, I have been burned by products that weren't as advertised or slightly damaged, and my laziness cost me in my ability to not beable to return the product.
Be careful to shop with a seller that allows for easy returns with no restocking fees. I am able to always find something to buy to get FREE shipping from Amazon and then there's never a problem returning.
I love this book... hope you do too.
