Used a copy of this cd at a workshop for children - excellent. Have to have my own copy for my classes. Great for tempo and meter movement.

If this product is bought online as a MP3 download the accompanying movement ideas will not be available. My question is , does the hard copy come with some suggested activities, and moves ideas?
