"The Royal Conservatory of Music's Celebrate Theory series is an exciting and integrated musical journey for students and teachers. I have enjoyed going through the theory books and am excited about all of the elements, specifically the inclusion of guided listening, analyzation of repertoire and exploration of music history. This is an incredibly well-rounded theory series which will inspire the love of music at all ages and levels of study. I look forward to using it in my studio. Well done!"

"As a Founding School and Assessment Center for the Royal Conservatory in Franklin, MA, we have used your previously published Rudiments books since we opened. The new Celebrate Theory series is much more intuitive and makes so much sense, integrating level-appropriate material with the performance and technical requirements for each level beginning with Preparatory. Thank you so much for providing us with more useful tools to help us help our students realize their potential in all areas of their musical journey!"
