Description
My First Classical Music Book teaches young readers the basics of classical music. It begins by discussing all the places music can be found, then introduces readers to the major composers from each era of music - from Baroque through modern day. The book wraps up with an introduction to the instruments of the orchestra. All along the way, there are listening examples on the enclosed CD. The charming, often humorous illustrations, and easy-reading text will keep readers engaged throughout. There is a text bubble about each listening example, which gives readers something to listen for on the CD track, spurring the audience to be active listeners.
