          This is a good informative book which enables the musician to take part in a fun filled education playing upbeat songs along with a cd

          Don't let the pictures on the front let you think this book is just for kids... Anyone of around grade 3 - 5 standard will get hours of fun out of this book. Some really lovely tunes in a range of styles/genres and the backing CD is great for encouraging good listening / timing / intonation skills. Highly recommended - beautifully set out - clear to read and a lovely book to work through. 1st to 4th position used.
