"Liberty for All is an incredible classroom resource. Performances, historical information, photos, links, all at my fingertips, help me teach about and share the wonderful music of our country. Alone or used with the downloadable teacher's guide, it interests and motivates my students. Selective use allows me to use the CD/DVD with all of my students ¢ from kindergarten level at Brownell-Talbot School in Omaha, NE, to my pre-service classroom teacher students at the University of Nebraska at Omaha."

"I received the Liberty for All CD. It is great. I used it with my high school last year. Will use it with middle school general music this year. It has great sound quality and music that keeps their attention."
