    Fay Kittelson gives a very poor example. The material she presents is completely out of tune and without any kind of passion. Very unfortunate I had to spend my money on this

    Difficulty Level:
  • 2001-06-06 00:00:00.0 Terrific way to learn classical pieces!

    I just received this set and after listening just to a quick review of each piece, I am anxious to begin learning. The CD comes has each song twice, once with a vocalist, and then the second time without. Perfect way to learn pronunciation, timing and a tremendous help to...

    those of us who are not sight readers. Excellent choices of songs....a super choice for sure!
