    • Good read

      Our daughter is a music teacher. I had borrowed this book previously from the library and she found it interesting and useful in the classroom. When it was available from O, I purchased it for her. I had a bit of trouble ordering online (password glitch), so I phoned the order in. The rep was really good and the book arrived in excellent condition in a timely manner.
