Fine Musician Friends
Volume 3, Grade 1 of the This Is Music! series
By Dena Adams and Claire Clark
Book and CD
Eight music lessons designed for the early grades teacher or substitute with a limited music background.
Lessons are in easy-to-follow outline format. Average lesson length is 30-40 minutes. Most songs are familiar or use piggback lyrics. Melodies are notated on the treble clef.
All songs, poems, dances and games are recorded on the enclosed CD. Sometimes an adult male does the singing. Other times either a female or child's voice is used. Most instructions are recorded on the CD so substitutes can simply play the CD while following the lesson outline.
