Musical Book Reviews | Episode 3

It's been over a year since the last Rebecca Reads! If you didn't catch them last summer, Rebecca and her kids read a musical book each week on The Lane School of Music Facebook page. Now, very special guests Charles and Thomas Lane, are here to help Rebecca and Zara review their favourite musical books.
