        This book and CD is brilliant! I am so pleased. I haven't played my cello for about 15 years so wanted something relatively straight forward that would motivate me to play again. The quality of the soundtrack is so much better than I was expecting having read previous reviews. Great being able to hear what the cello part sounds like is useful but nice to go it along too. There are also PDFs of piano accompianments if needed.
        Some pieces look easier than others eg. bit slower with not too many sharps and flats which will be good while I'm remembering where all the notes are but some will definitely offer a bit more of a challenge to get them up to speed, I'd say grades 3/4 is probably fair. Variety of tunes is great definitely something for everyone. Would recommend, it has got me really excited about playing again.
        As advertised it is an MP3 CD which is fine as was prepared. I have stuck in computer and downloaded to iTunes and to my phone but would have been easier if I could have just stuck it straight in my CD player.
