Testimonials

"The Weird Al of A cappella"- Acaville Radio

"Prof. Silverberg’s approach is comprehensive, with a full understanding of the subject material. He demonstrated full control of the classroom technology, and in doing so, kept every student engaged."- Five Towns College 

"'I Will Never Be In Pentatonix' is not only musically sound and very funny—it’s also complex—more or less equal parts tribute, parody, and stellar original music." -The A cappella Blog

"This. Is. Hilaaaarious."- Kevin Olusola, for "I Will Never Be In Pentatonix"

"Powerful and meaningful approach to vocal music!"- Modern Band Summit

"This book is so cleverly written. It was an easy read, enjoyable, and a great book for anyone interested in a capella. As a matter of fact, it's a fun book for anyone to read!"- Amazon review of "The ABCs of A cappella"
