  • March 27, 2012 CD Mix-Up

    I like the selection of music, and my limited experience with it has been positive. A word of warning that on the CDs that came with my copy of the book, the selections are incorrectly named. All the accompaniments are there, but about two-thirds were mislabled. I spent a...

    book store in town and when she found this online, it saved us. We had the sheet music and the CD. The program even allowed her to change the key of the music. This product shouldl be available in every music and book store and the music schools should recommend it and carry it in their student stores.
