    Nice arrangements -- some of this rather challenging. The accompaniments are well written too. My husband and I are using these for weddings, dinner music, etc.

  • April 13, 2007 Sounds like the real thing!

    This book is wonderful for the young cellist. The songs are all main themes from the movies - you recognize them instantly. The cello part sounds like it has been taken directly off the orchestral score - very authentic. It has been just enough of a challenge to encourage my 12 year...

    old daughter, but not to put her off. The CD accompaniment really does sound like you're at the movies - it's not a kiddie version made up for the book. The piano accompaniment is for accomplished players, not beginners, and is also enjoyable. My daughter can't get enough of this book - it's terrific!
