"Middle Eastern Songs and Dances for Children are valuable resources for my music education students here at Ithaca College. It is material that can be easily adapted for any grade level. My college students thoroughly enjoyed learning authentic songs and dances from this part of the world which they have very little knowledge or experience with. It should be included in any multicultural educational curriculum."-Dr. Baruch J. Whitehead, Assistant Professor of Music Education, Ithaca College School of Music

"Today I taught my second and third grade classes the Pot Cover Dance from your book. These two classes are among my most challenging and it is often difficult to get them to try something outside their own culture...They really got into it...we added finger cymbals to substitute for pot covers, it just added to the fun of the piece, and they all can find Turkey on a map now. Thank you!"-JT, Texas K-12 Music Educator
