        I purchased these to replace old editions and like the idea that you can now listen to the pieces on cd so you can get the idea of what it should sound like.

        It is good that so many of the titles that were only availble in the USA are now available in this country. I had to send to the USA to purchase many of his publications as I find the series very good for myself as the print in the tutors especially the Easiest course much clearer and bigger to see, as I am visually impaired

        I would like to see more music available for grades 0-2 in large print
        I wish I could just purchase the cd's separately for my old books in the John Thompson ranges instead of having to buy the book as well again. Can the company look into doing this in the future as it will be a great help.
