  • September 02, 2008 I am learning so much!

    I am 54 and sing in a large church choir. I wanted to learn the fundamental theories behind music so I am using Alfred's as my instructor. I bought all the books and Cds and the teacher answer book. I can not believe how much more understandable music has...

    become for me. I take the books with me wherever I go and study while waiting for appointments, etc. What a wonderful use of time it has been. I have improved so much in the choir.
