To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Gosh- this book is phenomenal! A friend of mine was required to get it for a graduate class as part of his Master's degree in Choral Music Education- and thought I'd enjoy reading it, as well. I will post an addition to the review as I finish the book- but I wanted to go ahead and post that I think it is excellently put together and very well-written. As a private voice and piano instructor (and an accompanist at a local high school) I've found myself putting a sticky note in many, many times for things I want to go back and reread or revisit.
