Musicroom Reviews

Rating Review
Customer Rating This book was excellent. It helped me greatly. It has a huge choice of songs from all three of the sections. Both higher and lower songs suited to both sopranos and altos. 5 stars!!!

Customer Rating My friend and I were introduced to Songbook 5 by our singing teacher. There is so much choice both for songs for festivals, for practice and also to be adventurous. My friend is a tenor and I am an alto/mezzo. Best of all, the CDs provide accompaniment for practice at home without recourse to "note bashing" to work out the timing. This means we can get more out of our singing lessons.

Customer Rating Prompt and excellent condition - a great investment as many of the ABRSM Grade 5 voice syllabus pieces are included in 1 book.

Customer Rating Good quick delivery in good condition.
