This book has a good mix of tracks, some more difficult than others. They're all a good length (around 3 minutes each on average), good for someone who is looking to move on from short beginner pieces. I found it ideal for me as someone who started learning the sax 6 months before buying it. Everyone's different, of course, but this is ideal for light, enjoyable music with a well produced backing CD. Anonymous
