It help a lot
Updated and optimized for iPad
Alfred updated this book using Apple's iBooks Author and it is now much easier to use and the notes are much easier to read now. The layout has been optimized for iPad so it looks and works much better now than it did before these updates were made.
Not much better than having the CD
This is OK. I was hoping that this iPad/Mac version would have the speed change option that is available on the CD. As a band director, I’m discovering that more and more of my students no longer have CD players AND more and more folks have laptops without CD/DVD players. ANOTHER COMPLAINT: there’s need to be more time between the announcement of the song title and the clicks to start. Students, especially beginners, need time to get their instruments ready. I guess the idea from the writers is that the student is supposed to listen to the first half then play along on the second half. I like for them to play along WITH the professional to listen for tuning and match the tone quality.
