    This is perfect for lap harps! While the beauty of Music Maker Harps is that anyone can play them – regardless of musical talent or any knowledge of notes or reading music. Which is why I wanted to get one for my kids, but then I opened the box and it wasn't tuned, and I didn't have the ear to tune it! Which left my options at playing horribly off key, finding a musical friend that could tune it, or leaving it in the box! In the box sat our harp, with the kids wanting to know when they could play it and me not knowing what to do. Until I found the E-Z Tuner! Simply clip the tuner on the end of the harp, turn on the digital display, and play a note on the first string (a tuning sheet is included with the harp showing what note each string should be). The tuner displays what note was played, simply use the tuning tool (included with the harp) to tighten or loosen the strings until the optimal note is achieved. Now our harp plays beautiful music (on key!) and the kids are happy, too! ~ Megan

    (Can be used for Lap Harps and other stringed instruments: guitars, ukeleles, etc.)

      Accompany your Latin courses, or even a holiday dinner, with 13 Christmas songs sung in Latin (well, 2 are instrumentals.) Some of the songs are 1,500 years old! Songs include: Hodie Christus Natus Est, Veni Veni Emmanuel, Puer Natus in Bethlehem, Resonet in Laudibus, Jesu Redemptor Omnium, Corde Natus ex Parentis, What Child is This? (instrumental), Creator Alme Siderum, Adeste Fideles, In Dulci Jubilo, Flos de Radice Jesse, and Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence (instrumental.) A lovely female voice is accompanied by a harp, keyboard, violin, psaltery and sometimes other voices. The result is calm and soothing. You could certainly have this playing in the background and have a conversation. An insert includes the lyrics in Latin and English. From Classical Academic Press, ~ Sara

     This is a cute little Thinking Tree workbook for practicing letters. Pages have dotted lines to trace curves and shapes prior to tracing upper and lower case letters. The letters are rather small: 1 cm with a dotted half-line. While the book is black and white, there are loads of pretty illustrations to color. Coloring pages show something starting with a specific letter: girl for G, night for N, violin for V, etc. I found these illustrations pretty complicated for a child of 3 to 6 years. Reminiscent of adult coloring books, they will certainly practice young ones’ fine motor skills! The back of the book has several pages for creativity. There are boxes for creating comics and large lines to practice writing (2cm wide with dotted half line). 8x11”, 100pp, sc. ~ Sara

       Perfect for anyone old enough to hold a ukulele, these books start at the very beginning of learning the instrument. Both books come with a handy chord chart poster and follow a nearly identical path for the first 12-13 lessons, learning about 17 chords and ending with rhythms and rests, but where How to Play Ukulele (#64351) ends, Progressive Beginner Ukulele continues for 7 more lessons, where students will learn 19 more chords as well as elements of music like diminished chords, Major 7th chords, and triplet rhythms. Progressive Beginner Ukulele has color pages and a link to online access for video & audio files for all the songs and lessons, whereas How to Play Ukulele (#64351) has black and white pages with a DVD of video lessons and a play-along CD (video/audio content is the same as the online content, except that the CDs and DVDs do not contain the additional tracks for the extra lessons in Progressive Beginner Ukulele book.) Both books provide a quality beginner understanding of the instrument that is perfect for children and adults alike. Softcover. – Laura

      Teach yourself this charming little instrument in no time at all! This quick and simple program presents the details of the instrument itself, basic rhythm, strumming, and simple chords. Heavy music theory is absent from the program, making this great for the student who wants to learn ukulele as an additional instrument or just as quickly as possible, not necessarily for the student who wants to build a solid musical education. While not necessarily written for a younger student, the information is presented clearly enough that almost anyone could learn quickly, child and adult alike (Parents: why not learn alongside your child?). The 48 page book contains pictures, chord charts, and simple sheet music that correlates with the included DVD to accommodate multiple learning styles. 48 pg, sc. – Laura

    Set includes 36 illustrated wall cards with the alphabet plus numbers 1-10. Each crisp white page is 8.5” x 11” and made of cardstock. You see a capital and lower case (on the HWOT double line) of each letter plus a colorful drawing of an object starting with that letter (apple, balloon, car, duck, koala, pear, violin, etc.). The number cards show the number, the word written out and drawings of things to count like 4 clownfish and 7 hearts. Useful in a classroom setting or even in a child’s bedroom as they learn their alphabet. ~ Sara

    Let’s face it: the songs in instrument-learning books, while valuable, are not very fun to play. What IS fun to play is a song that everyone knows and can play or sing along to. That’s where this book comes in! If your student wishes to learn some songs that are a little more fun or wants to take a step towards “real” songs after some of their lesson books, these are the perfect fit. For each song, there are tabs (a notation method that shows which fret to play on which string: highly popular for learning to play more popular songs), chords, and even sheet music for your more classically trained student. Your student will be able to play old standards like The Farmer in the Dell, Jesus Loves Me, The Bear Went Over the Mountain, and 56 other songs. In addition, we also carry the guitar version of this book (#060680), so if one child plays the guitar and one plays ukulele, they will be able to play duets together, making for some great family fun and bonding time! Parents, the music for the song Ninety-Nine Bottles of Beer is included, so you may want to do a little creative editing and change the lyrics to “pop” before handing the book over to your child. Includes a chord dictionary for quick reference. 83 softcover pages. – Laura

The images are easily recognizable (butterfly, car, violin, egg, insect, etc.). Green arrows on the image side tell the student how to insert the cards. This set has white cards with a red border

    These alphabet cards really appeal to the different senses! You’ve never seen alphabet cards like these. Each double-sided card has a different letter on each side, with the upper and lower case letter, a colorful picture of an object starting with that letter, the object’s name, the braille dot pattern for the letter and the name of the object, and an illustrated picture of how you would sign the word in sign language. But wait, there’s more! Each object has a touch and feel or a scratch and sniff component! Smell apples, oranges, grapes, ice cream and roses; feel furry cats, soft feathers, scaly lizards, and twang violins. An extra card shows the sign language hand position for each letter of the alphabet; the opposite side shows the letters with the braille dot pattern for each letter below. Set includes 14 sturdy cards. ~ Megan

    This study guide by Beautiful Feet is a musical journey from the Baroque age of composition to the Modern era. Beginning with Corelli, the father of modern violin playing, and tracing the development of composition up to the time of Igor Stravinsky, students will learn of the lives of the great composers, many of whom were devoted Christians. The formation of the orchestra as well as a study of each type of musical instrument is included. Much of the practical use students will get from the study guide will come with also using the Music Masters CD collection (also available in our music section) so students learn how to identify music by great composers, as well as name instruments by sound. A combination of music and biography makes this study enjoyable.

    Subtitled "Your Guide to the Orchestra through Sounds and Stories," this book walks you through the large family of musical instruments. It covers the little piccolo to the huge bass drum, the common violin to the lesser-known glockenspiel, the unpretentious recorder to the grand piano, and just about any other instrument you might wish to learn about. Although the focus is on the instruments themselves, they are introduced within the context of the orchestra – i.e. the book is divided by family along with diagrams of where the instruments are usually situated within the orchestra, and many of the descriptions/informative blurbs mention situations or facts about playing in an orchestra. The instruments are introduced in the following order: the strings, the woodwinds, the brass, and the percussion as well as additional chapters on the voice, electronic instruments, the conductor, and a dictionary of musical terms. The pages feature an informal but professional layout of pictures, labels, captions, fun facts, short informative paragraphs, and diagrams. A CD-ROM is also included with the book, allowing you to hear the sounds of the instruments as well as providing more information such as the history of the instruments and famous composers and musicians. 176 pgs, hc. – Melissa
