What people are saying…

This is a great collection — lots of fun and lots of variety!” ~ Janice, ON

What a wonderful book!…The world of music is better for composers like you sharing your work with students and families.” ~ Robin Carr

I’ve got a student who LOVES your book of Old MacDonald.  She’s kind of dragged her feet for quite some time with her practicing and lessons but now since I’ve introduced her to your book she is gobbling it up.  It’s great, cause it’s making her count and use the metronome and she doesn’t mind at all!” ~ Caroline, AB

“If student demand is any indication of quality, this music “re-telling” of classic folk songs is already destined for success! Shortly after receiving a copy of “Old MacDonald Had the Blues”…a student [has] been begging to take it home and play them himself….” ~ Natalie Weber, Music Matters blog

“I loved your arrangements of the familiar tunes and thought they would be really fun to teach an older beginner.” ~ Elina, ON

“I love “Old MacDonald Had the Blues”  I…am thrilled with my purchase.  I have played through each of the pieces many times just for fun myself and I am very, very excited to share this with my students.  I know they will love it just as much as I do.  Thank you so much!” ~ Elizabeth, MD

“…one of my students in particular is impressed with the Old MacDonald book…. Again this week he remarked that, ‘She makes them all sound so interesting.’” ~ Janice, ON

“I’m looking forward to using it with my boys.”  – Pete, GA

“Old MacDonald may have the blues, but you certainly will not when you are teaching these new pieces, by Rebekah Maxner, to your students! Old MacDonald Had the Blues is a wonderful collection of pieces that are fresh, interesting and engaging.” ~ Remi Lefebvre, NSRMTA Arabesque review, NS

“You have done a great job with the arrangements and the art work and lay-out are great too.”  ~ Gayle, ON

“Just a quick note to tell you that my student Madeleine who…bought a copy of “Old MacDonald had the Blues” last week has already learned three of the pieces on her own…. Hope that makes you smile. :)” ~ Elizabeth, NS
