World Sound Matters is an anthology of music from around the world, comprising: 2 CDs of 58 traditional music recordings, representing 35 different countries · notated transcriptions of each recorded example · 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. 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.

"My husband and I are really impressed with your customer service. It's a rarity to experience the type of attention that you have paid to this matter. The school where our two kids attend, has violin as a part of their third grade curriculum. After the customer service you have shown we both would feel comfortable endorsing your company to other parents at the school who will be needing violins and other instruments for their children."
