    This is perhaps the best book I have seen on this subject. Clear, informative, and original, it guides students through rhythms and instruments that are unusual and just plain cool!! Bravo to the author and publisher- We need more books like this that respect students and their musical abilities. This...

    book and CD receive my highest recommendation.
