    Having so much fun with this music and realizing even more the true magic of Elissa - Brilliant! I was first inspired with the polyrhythms and variation of articulation in beginner collections. The titles are refreshing and descriptive with the following tempo suggestions - glistening, Beware, Alarming, Gleeful, Ready to Pounce, Laid...

    -back, Pleased, etc. there are even more! I'm even learning about some new animals - Echidna and Bandicoot! This last element is even more brilliant: At the conclusion of Very Easy Little Peppers and Easy Little Peppers, are pieces titled, "Peas in a Pod". These are not only aleatoric music in regard to indeterminate arrangement of the eight parts in performance, but ALSO these eight parts may be played together as a duet, duo, or even with 3-4 people playing simultaneously and beginning on a different part! I have two more books, and I'm sure to be more amazed

    Elissa Milne has composed a book of easily accessible, fun, jazzy pieces that pre-preliminary students can play. The music uses patterns that are easy to follow and learn, and the pieces sound great - really the thing you need to inspire children who are fed up with their regular music...

    book! They'll love it, I have bought the whole series and my love them.
