Music Teachers Reviews
"I have several of my 4 and 5 year olds using the Doctor Mozart Book. They are enjoying it immensely." D.L., AB.
"Our Kindergarten and 1st graders especially love this book. Im really impressed with how much they enjoy doing their theory work. If anything is going to get done during the week, it is their pages in Doctor Mozart." L.H., LA
"I have been searching for a theory book which will enhance the piano students lessons rather than bore them. The Doctor Mozart theory book is filled with everything for which I have been searching. The pages are colorful, and there are interesting, fun tips that help students retain information in ways not found in the traditional theory books." J.K., Maple Grove, MN .
