“Refresh Books are a godsend! I plan to use them for teaching on-line this summer and will suggest your materials to all of my course participants. In addition, while leading schools in curriculum development, I’ll propose they adopt your dry-erase materials for the entire district – this is the fastest (and most fun) way to have students think and write musically.”

Georgia A Newlin, Past President OAKE, author 'One Accord: Developing Part-Singing Skills in School Age Musicians'
