  Our solos can be played as duets by any family with a piano or keyboard and instrumentalist. If you don’t have a keyboard, you can play these pieces with the piano accompaniments on our CD—included with your music.


Who are the Musicians on the CD?
  Donn Teubner-Rhodes, MD studied clarinet and saxophone at North Texas University. Later, he studied Flute with Paula Hatcher of the Peabody Institute who studied with famed jazz guitarist Charlie Byrd.
  Donn performs jazz and classical music in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan areas.
  On this CD, Donn plays 4 instruments: Alto Saxophone (Celebration, In the Park), Clarinet (Reminiscing, Goodbye), Flute (Courtly Dance, Pastorale), and Tenor Saxophone ( Frolic, Wistfulness).

  Steve Atlas studied music history at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He plays piano, has sung tenor in several choruses, and enjoys composing tuneful easy-to-perform music.

Is the music in fine print or large print?
  The sheet music is fairly large print and easy to read.

Is the sheet music loose or bound?
  Both the piano book and instrument book are spiral bound with easy page turns.

Do I have to turn pages when playing?
  All solos are no more than 2 open-face pages. The soloist has no page turns during the performance.
    If the pianist provides their purchase order number and shipping name and address to us, we will provide a pdf of their piano music.
   They can then print their music single-sided and tape the pages together into one long sheet for performances. This keeps the pianist from
   having to rip up his or her piano book.

How long will it take to get my order?
  Most orders placed using PayPal will be received by you within three - five working days.
  Emergency overnight delivery can be arranged for short-dated performances to maximize your practice time. Contact us prior to your order for confirmation
