"This excellent step by step guide is a must have for all leaving certificate music students. It provides exactly what the students need to know in an easy-to-navigate format. I find Dara's book not only clear but concise and to the point. I believe this book will have its deserved place amongst the current well known, used books that have become such a vital part of our music classrooms" – Gráinne Cullen, teacher, Assumption Secondary School
