Introducing a bright and appealing kit that will have kids making music in no time at all--and this one even comes packaged with an instrument to play!
The recorder is one of the most popular instruments in the classroom--an effective and economical teaching tool that children can start playing relatively quickly. And this comprehensive, colorful new manual, which comes complete with a cool blue recorder, offers a light and fun approach to learning, teaching everything from musical notation to folk songs and classical compositions. Plus, the spiral-bound book stands up like an easel inside its box for easy playing. Kids will have a truly harmonious experience with their recorder as they look through the eye-catching diagrams and charts, and find out about notes, symbols, and markings; holding the instrument; fingering; basic techniques such as breathing and articulation; musical terms; chords; and advanced concepts, including improvisation. The musical selections range from very simple tunes such as "London Bridge" and "Skip to my Lou" to holiday favorites and pieces by the great masters.
