Just what I needed for my budding horn player 23 Oct. 2013
By M. Yeomans - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Staple Bound Verified Purchase
I bought this for my horn player after he lost the first one at school. I got this book for about a third of what I paid at a local music store. Note that this is the book only. The one I bought at the store included a CD. If you don't need the CD this is a great deal.

Good 28 Jan. 2013

Format: Staple Bound Verified Purchase
I ordered this book for my daughter for band class and it came in a good amount of time. The only thing is it was missing the cd that comes with it.
