Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from Practical Clear and Useful I study arranging through the years and never got a chance to practice. Nowadays with Sibelius and VEPro 6 and VI and the knowledge presented I am able to write and experiment and explore the concepts. Downloaded the book through Amazon too.

Rated 2.0 out of 5 by from Good book but annoying typo I have this book on kindle. I was hoping they had fixed this amateurish ridiculous typo that I also reported in a review on for kindle. But the typo is here too. Everytime the “b” (for flat) is suppose to be there it has a “E” instead. Trumpet in BE instead of Trumpet in Bb. Sax in EE instead of Eb etc. I can get my head around it but come on Groove 3 get them to fix this in thei otherwise excellent book.
