World Sound Matters is an anthology of music from around the world, comprising of 58 traditional songs representing 35 different countries. It includes notated transcriptions of each song, explanatory texts covering the special context of each style and its musical content, 2 sets of progressive pupil listening-based questions for each musical style, and more. Each unit is free-standing and can be used effectively on its own. Alternatively, units can be combined to provide an introduction to the musical traditions of the world. The result is a publication which should be of practical use to a wide range of musicians, from secondary school teachers to their pupils, from adults interested in knowing more about world music to music students wishing to specialize in this field, and to composers.

"I placed my order for an accordion on a Sunday morning before President's Day, expecting the typical delays associated with weekend and holiday orders. Then, to my surprise, the accordion arrived on Tuesday right after President's Day. I was very pleased, not only for the quality of service, but also for the quality of the instrument. The sound is beautiful, and I will play it in church this coming Sabbath. Many thanks"
