“The Sayre Series is a long overdue and exciting new approach to the teaching of elementary musicianship and musical literacy. Its advantage is monumental… The Workbooks are far and away the best materials I have seen for cultivating basic aural skills, theory skills, and musical literacy with beginning- and intermediate-level music students — and they are designed to be used with a variety of instrumentalists and to work equally well in individual and group settings. There’s nothing quite like these books. They’re designed simply and masterfully and represent major advancement in music education in The United States.”
