    They put a nice and fun twist to these well known songs. I would put the difficulty at Suzuki Book 3.

    Great arrangements - But the CD is terribly disappointing. I've purchased 2 of these books trying to get a CD to work. Tried it on 2 of my CD players and 1 of my friends, and it won't play. It will only play in my car (great help for...

    a sax) or my computer, and you just get a plunky old piano for backup. I have other Carl Strommen arrangements with CD that are great.
