          informative and progressive with some familiar and fun tunes. We are using the same book for all three of us: euphonium, cornet and tuba!

          Very nice clear instruction. Nice gradual introduction to new notes. The CD brings a lot of encouragement to new players.

          Ce recueil est absolument formidable ! Ma fille de 8 ans qui s'est mise au cornet cette année l'a de suite adopté : il est progressif et très limpide (les images et les schémas permettent de tout comprendre même sans parler un mot d'anglais) ! Le CD est également très bien conçu car les morceaux sont joués à la trompette, avant d'avoir le play back d'accompagnement pour jouer à son tour : ma fille a fait d'énormes progrès en s'amusant toute seule avec ce livre !

          As a 77yr. old learner I started on valve numbers this book has really helped me to understand music alittle better .But I know i have a lot to learn. It sinks in little by little. D.P.

          Excellent Book! The backing tracks really liven up the pieces!

          Updated version of the old Tune A Day book. Has been revised and is more than just the old book in a new type! Old one is quite dated. Has pull-out fingering chart included. Unlike other books, doesn't get too hard too fast, quite a gradual build up. Only new on market so I'll only give 3 stars until my students have used it more, but it does look promising!! ...after a year of using it, I recommend it!
