  • February 14, 2017 well done

    I thought this music is true to the score but it is rather challenging with many flats, sharps, accidentals and key changed. They need to be there to make the music right but you will have to be better than me to just play through this without some practic

  • November 14, 2011 Fun but Odd

    This is a fun book!! The songs are fun but the music changes signature often which makes it a tad confusing. Good book over all though!

    The book is great. The chording sounds just as it is in the movie. I liked that I was able to see a couple pages in the book before I bought it.

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 18, 2009 Fun music, but beware accidentals

    If you sing along with the book, it is a lot of fun, the lyrics are funny and clever. There are A LOT of accidentals but if you practice a lot it gets easier. I give the book only 3 stars because of the amount of repetition in some of...

    the longer songs.
