This is a great resource. The information is well organized and clearly defined. A feature I appreciated was the mobile access to the material. This resource could easily be encorporated in music courses and for all levels.

This is a great material, well explained, with knowledge in the right levels, with the subject developed very precise, with simple and coherent examples. I reviewed this material alone, I like a lot the music and always the reading music issue has been complicated, it's the first time that I understand it well. I will be back to this material cause I want to study it and learn all the lessons. It's great.
