“...Music teachers will certainly enjoy the chance to play these charming tunes, both solo and with friends. In addition, many of the tunes can be played by the teacher to generate and enhance movement activities while studying other cultures. I would recommend ths book for the teacher who wishes to extend her playing experience and add a worth while resource of international music to her personal music library.”
- Linda Hill,
The Orff Echo, Fall 1996
