"Just received your Book 1 and am so impressed... This book is brilliant and I can’t wait to start using it with my upcoming students next year... Love the Kodaly approach too. This is the way I learnt and my daughters are learning at the moment in their music classes. It is so beautiful how you are connecting the Kodaly with the instrumental class."
