Awarded an A+ by elementary educators, the Children’s Music Journey Series addresses music reading and understanding objectives identified by elementary school music curriculums and is a valued solution for elementary school districts. The program incorporates a "teach, practice, apply" methodology that successfully helps young children learn to read music, play piano with both hands, compose and improvise. The program provides an excellent background for continued development with the piano and is an ideal preparation for band programs. In 2006, the American Federation of Teachers selected CMJ to represent 21st Century elementary music programs.

Would you recommend this series?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, great for my 5 and 3 year old the past year or so. Both reading music now, they love the games and play them independently. They also took music classes but this was great home "study" but absolutely not studying in the classic sense of the word, it is purely play learning. I have all three childrens music journeys. Highly recommend.
