About Viva La Música lyrics booklet & music CD

"I wrote the first ten songs for travelers, and the others I composed with certain vocabulary and grammar points in mind. The songs are practical, melodious and sometimes humorous. The CD comes with a booklet containing the Spanish lyrics and English translations. My CD is appropriate for young children, 1st-3rd year high school students, and for college students during the first year and a half of study." -- author and singer Elise Carr Sumner
