  • January 14, 2009 A Cultural Experience!

    I really love Hungarian and Roma music. This book includes close to one hundred songs from Russia, Bolivia, Poland, and many other countries, so I easily found what I was looking for. There are some really beautiful songs, a mix of challenging and easy. The CD is a great way...

    to train your ear to the new style of Eastern European music. Some of my favorites are Waiting, Pretzels, and Five Rubles.

    This is a good suppliment to the Suzuki books. I wish there were also a piano accompaniment included with the book. The c.d. is o.k., but it would be better to have a piano part for performances.

  • July 14, 2008 Great music from SheeMusic Plust

    I am very pleased with the music I recently received. We have a music group that meets once a week and we are using the Eastern European Music. We have strings and other instruments. This music lends itself well to our comnination of instruments.

  • March 19, 2007 Soulful Enough For A Beginner Adult

    These pieces are just want an adult beginner is looking for when they are not feeling challenged enough from "Hot Cross Buns". THe pieces are short enought to get through and feel like you have accomplished something. I will warn you that while your listening to the CD and looking...

    at the music you will find some inconsitencies. But even these can be a nice challenge for a beginner to spot and correct.
