    Most of all, an index is needed so people will see what is in the book before they buy it. The texts of many are so Victorian in language as to be unsingable by young people today. We could have used a lot more English texts. Index needed so we...

    This is the only way to learn new music. I wish these things had been available when I was a young singer. Wow! What a difference it would have made.

  • August 20, 2007 Great Songs

    This Book is a MUST for any serious vocal student. The songs are great and there is so much variety. The songs are a little tough for beginners, but for teens with a couple years of practice, they're perfect.

    Somewhat challenging pieces with a good range for Sopranos. A little difficult for children but great for teens with experience, or adults.
