    I wanted some organized practice techniques and went with the "Berklee" name...not a great choice if you know the basics...this is a very basic book. If your adding a sax as a second instrument this may be a good book as it goes through the fingering, etc.

    The book it self is just fine, but not for Soprano starter book. Lots of useful information though. Over all it is a very good book. Playing only a few months but played the Flute for many years.
