So You Want To Tread The Boards by Jennifer Reischel

Backing Tracks

There are various places to find these in shops and online. I recommend Itunes and Chappels (if anywhere near London)

London Arrangements provide tailor-make backing tracks if you have the sheet music and cannot find accompaniment on CD anywhere.

For lots more internet listings including a chapter in sheet music (and where to find rare material) please read 'So you want to tread the boards'
