useful to revision of keyboard harmonies and experimenting Review by Eleanor
Star Rating
enjoyed the review of keyboard harmonies and the challenge of getting them in an acceptable format. Opportunity to practice and get some confidence when faced with those "extended" waiting periods when planned music finnishes a wee bit before the rest of the service (Posted on 03/09/2012)
