I think this is great way to learn to play your French Horn, especially if you are without a teacher and want to get on quickly. However I have given it 4stars rather than 5 because I when I bought my copy I was not aware that the accompanying cd only covers about half the music in the book and try as I might I have not been able to get a copy of the cd for the remaining tracks. There are not many books covering French horn tuition and this one is really good value for money, I just wish someone would get on and write Book 3 soon! Anonymous
