When I paid $30 for this text I was hoping for some useful insight and commentary. There is NONE.
The only insight that is gained is into the author's massive ego. The value of this text is spelled out on the back when one notes there are no quotes about the value of the text. Nope. The quotes the author chose to use ALL talk about what a wonderful musician she is; egotistical and wholly unhelpful.
It is clear that this text could have been so much more if the author had been less lazy and offered more insights.
Avoid at all cost.
In her book, "The Secret of Teaching Math and Science through Music," Dr. Frank convincingly establishes that providing children with the opportunity to play a musical instrument gives them the advantage of additional stimulation necessary to do better scholastically. In her program workbook, "Musical Notes on Math," she provides curriculum for students in kindergarten through fifth grade that has been successfully tested by teachers in southeast Virginia. Dr. Frank's program makes teaching and learning math a much easier and fun process for both teachers and students. I only wish Dr. Frank's program had been available when my son was in school and struggling with math!
