This resource is a great help to my little girl. This resource is so easy to use that it’s not only usable during my class, but can also be used in substitute classes. Can’t wait to see bundle #6! I hope so!

My school asked me to substitute for the music teacher, who was out of town due to an emergency. My knowledge about music was minimal. It was so easy to use. The students absolutely loved it. You are a great resource!
