  • December 15, 2010 Great book!

    I loved playing this book. It's a great starter book for young students. I am in book two, but I still enjoy playing songs like : Sawmill creek, Volga boat song, and Montego Bay. We played Montego bay for our final concert that year we used that book, and it...

    turned out great.
