Rating Review
Customer Rating Most of these tunes are fairly short and deceptively simple but there is a wide variety of ethnic music and the CD gives ideas for ornamentation if you listen carefully. The author has an approachable writing style and it is worth checking out his other books such as St Patrick Was A Cajun, which contain fairly challenging arrangements of his own tunes.

Customer Rating a very good book to give you an intro and feeling of music around the world and for your first steps into world music.

Customer Rating this book was clearly not grade 3-6 as it was listed its barely grade 1
