This textbook was required for my college's "Enjoyment of Music" class. The reason I am writing this review is to warn others that THE BOOK DOES NOT COME WITH THE 4-CD SET that is absolutely essential to learning the material. It does come with a DVD that has been useful, but I had to purchase the CDs separately, after the class had already begun.

Th picture and description of this textbook was very misleading. On the pictures it shows the enjoyment of music 4 cd set so I assumed it came with this textbook. It doesn't. I thought I'd be saving money buying it on here, but I actually ended up spending more than if I had just bought it at my school bookstore. The only way I could see if the 4 cd set was in there was to break the shrink wrap plastic around the book..and once that's broken you cannot return it. What a waste.

For students, this does NOT come with the CDs. The pictures indicate the CDs are included. Nice way of selling and letting you pay for return shipping and then to purchase CDs separately becomes quite expensive!Disappointed with Amazon on this one. When it arrives, can't open cello wrap or non-returnable. Don't know what's in package without opening cello. Get you coming and going!

and has some information about compositions, too.

Without the accompanying cd's, the overall value of this book wasn't very good. Didn't pay much for it, but as I said it wasn't complete.
