  • UGH so frustrating

    This is my second semester with this book. it is INCREDIBLY frustrating in ALL ways. None of the pages line up with teacher pages, it’s completely missing things that the physical book has (like, why is there a COMPLETELY different Allagretto in the ebook over the print version?), there is no clear apparent way to toggle bewteen pages (meaning, if you want page 50, you have to hand scroll through 50 pages, because if you put page 50 into the search bar, it doesn’t bring you to print copy pg 50 like the rest of the class, it brings you to ebook page 50, which is a completely different page than the book version). It randomly splits pages into sections, and breaks up sections and songs. Sometimes, the ebook includes a “pdf” version of a song, but not always…. I’m just so frustrated. yes, I’ve checked for updates and all. I may have to buy the physical version, this ebook is a real PITA. Save yourself the frustration of nothing making sense and just get the physical copy. Also, this isn’t unique to me. I’m now in my second class using it, other studnts are using it too, and we are all beyond frustrated with it. Do yourselves the favor. Skip this one.

    I bought this book for class and it was a nightmare. I could only find one of the pages we needed, despite them all being in the same chapter. The idea is cool, but it won't work for class. Waste of $30.
  • What an Advanced Book!

    This is a revolutionary book. I’ve used this book several times for classes in physical form, but this new revised physical publication is AMAZING and worth the price! You will not be disappointed with this book!!

    I am very impressed with the variety of teaching aids and student practice exercises. I'll be able to guide my students better in class this Fall for those that purchase the iBook and keep everything coordinated with the book users.
