  • March 27, 2012 CD Mix-Up

    I like the selection of music, and my limited experience with it has been positive. A word of warning that on the CDs that came with my copy of the book, the selections are incorrectly named. All the accompaniments are there, but about two-thirds were mislabled. I spent a...

    good hour or more listening to each one, determining which piece the accompaniment really belonged with and then renaming each of them in the playlist on my CD.

    Excellent compilation for my teen students. Good selection of tuneful music in appropriate vocal ranges (in a variety of languages). Very well presented. Good to have a CD backing also. Very happy with this.

  • April 27, 2011 The First Book of Mezzo-Soprano/Alto Solos

    This is a great product! My daughter needed to audition for various music schools. Their requirements were to choose a classical song from the school's song list, provide the sheet music for a piano player or bring in the music on a CD. We went to every music and...

    book store in town and when she found this online, it saved us. We had the sheet music and the CD. The program even allowed her to change the key of the music. This product shouldl be available in every music and book store and the music schools should recommend it and carry it in their student stores.
