      Really good - it explains the basics as well as describing the steps needed to compose your AS music piece. Great as extra help and guidance while composing!

      A clear writing style, lots of workable examples, plenty of imaginative angles for approaching the tasks, and a good range of genres. An ideal support to the AS course.
