    I have a 40-something beginner student who has thoroughly enjoyed this book. Most of the songs are familiar, the CD tempos are realistic for her. I'm ordering the Classics book for her next.

    This book with CD was just what my student needed to feel the beat and get the timing she was having trouble achieving It was also a great incentive for her to practice until it was right. The Bastien books are all wonderful teaching tools.
