Reviews

"The integration of written and aural skills texts is its greatest strength. To my knowledge, this is the only text that integrates the two areas to that extent." -- Gary Don, University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire
"It knits aural skills more closely to a complete musical fabric instead of it being a purely one-line melodic topic." -- Rebecca Jemian, University of Louisville
"There is simply no other textbook on the market that compares with respect to the emphasis on real music, the scope, breadth, clarity, and integration with theory and keyboard skills." -- Tim Pack, Universtiy of Oregon
