  • Biographies of and interviews with the artists, exploring each one's creative process
  • A link to free software - Orchestrators ToolKit - an invaluable aid for composers
  • Recordings readily available for all scores
  • Spiral-bound, 9x12 format for easy reading on a music stand or piano rack
  • Over 400 pages!
