Learn basic concepts through song
By Cristi Cary Miller
Book and CD
For grades 1 - 5
If you want to remember something, put it in a song. This clever collection of 14 original songs teach the basics of music. Learn to apply articulations, dynamics, tempos and more, while singing lyrics that describe them for learning that lasts! Songs are short and to the point with simple actions to reinforce the concept being taught. Piano accompaniments (with choreography notes) are given. Each activity lists the materials needed and the procedure.
The enclosed CD provides hands-free teaching and student opportunities to sing with recorded voices and with accompaniment only.
