    My students cherish their little copies of this book! They LOVE being asked questions and being able to look up the answers for themselves. Plus, each new composer they play, they get to look up and read a short snapshot of the life and times. Fantastic for every student, beginning...

    , intermediate or advanced. Needs to be in every music student's music bag.

    very helpful for meanings. I was also searching for ledger line notes which were not included. It would be helpful to identify the lower and higher scales.

  • 2008-01-25 00:00:00.0 A Got to have book!

    If you're in to music, musician or singer, composer, whatever, this is a great book to have. I find it very helpful and informative. "Notation signs and symbols including guitar tablature, Scales, modes and key signatures." When you have a question concerning what is D.S. or alto clef...

    , a contralto's singing range, it's all here. So glad I bought it.
