Why did you choose this?
West Music Store
I will be teaching music in the fall and several music teachers recommended this.
Joan H on Jun 19, 2012
Can someone tell me more about this boo? Is it rare and not easily found? Recommended somewhere else in a presentation, just trying to figure out it if it truly useful as was indicated.
Andrea G on May 15, 2016
Best Answer: It is not rare just expensive bc it is valued by music teachers. I've had it for many years and don't know if I would buy it now that it is so expensive but I do find it to be a great resource.
