    By Penny Gardner, author of Charlotte Mason Study Guide, this book is an excellent introduction to the recorder. Created for children, and non-musically-inclined adults, Penny presents the nine-note recorder method in an easy to learn, step-by-step approach. In the front of the book are the finger positions, instruction on how to read music, and tips for playing the recorder comfortably. To start with, only the three notes B, A, and G are introduced, along with thirteen songs to practice on before the next notes are brought into play. From there, you proceed to learn the rest of the notes, while practicing various songs along the way. In all, students learn 147 songs and over 50 duets and rounds, with a mix of children's songs, folk songs, early music, classics, Native American music, multicultural pieces, and Christmas songs. As an added bonus, the back cover pops into a stand, so you can easily display the music. - Stephanie

    This set is worth getting for the CD alone. It begins with children reciting "The Pledge of Allegiance" and "The Star-Spangled Banner" then, in music, introduces each state with an interesting fact about the state's history, geography, or a famous attraction. Then the music transitions into an alphabetical listing of each state, slow at first and then faster. Both kids and adults sing, and the songs are catchy and fun. Then, with rhythm and repetition, kids sing each state with its capital. Afterwards, a woman sings the capitals and pauses for students to sing the state out loud. The CD closes with "America the Beautiful." Twelve tracks are included on the CD (runtime is 30 minutes). The workbook has been scaled back from 96 pages to 48 and features full-color worksheet activities that emphasize state names, capitals, nicknames, regions, abbreviations, a state quiz, state identification game and more. Lyrics and an answer key that were previously found in printed format in the workbook have been moved to printable PDF files on the CD. ~ Rachel

    Kids already know these tunes, and now they can sing them anew with facts from presidential history. Yankee Doodle, Auld Lang Syne, Polly Wolly Doodle, Battle Hymn of the Republic, Home on the Range, Take Me Out to the Ballgame - these are just a few of the songs that have had the words rewritten to reflect historical accomplishments and events from the lives of all the US presidents – through George W. Bush. There are 32 tracks in all, so some presidents share songs. All the words are reproduced in the book, on the left hand page of each two-page spread. The right hand page gives details on the president(s) featured showing names, numbers, years served, events that occurred during their time in office, a question or two for exploration, and a website to search for more detailed information about the president. The songs on the audio CD are done by a 4th/5th grade choir, and the book is reproducible for the classroom or family of the purchaser.

    I’ll admit it – as a young music student, I thought classical music was boooring without lyrics to tell a story. It wasn’t until many years later in a collegiate music appreciation class when I began to hear pieces like Peter and the Wolf and other classic story pieces that I realized how wrong I was!

    This book contains 20 pieces of classical music and an accompanying CD. The book goes through each song individually, explaining the literature it is based on, the ballet it is derived from, or any other information beneficial for giving context. Each page also has a few illustrations to go along, but the real key to the story is in the text. After the section explaining each story, there is a listening guide to show what instruments or pitches are used to indicate different voices or actions. Additionally, there is a short biography of each conductor and a glossary of musical terms used throughout the book. This is a unique, kid-friendly approach to classical music that I wish I had owned as a child! What a great foundation to music appreciation! Parents, as are often found in Shakespeare or other tales of that era, many of the pieces contain stories about elves, witches, fairies, and two pieces in particular mention the Devil. 68 hardcover pages. – Laura

    Each verse of the familiar song has an explanation in this book as you learn about the 12 days between Christmas and the Epiphany.

    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

     Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Children are never too young to be saturated in God’s word and this CD is a delightful way to fill your children’s hearts and minds with Scripture. You will appreciate the quality of the multiple musical instruments and the sweet sounds of children’s voices singing 85 verses from the Old and New Testament. Music styles range from the soft, melodic lullaby to a more up-tempo toe-tapping country sound; this may become your favorite family “go to” music for the home and car. Scriptures from NIV Bible. Truly an auditory pleasure for all ages! Twenty songs, approximately one hour in length. ~ Deanne

    Using familiar songs to remember grammar rules is nothing new to language learning. But when you are learning a subject as tough as Latin, it helps even more. Add this book with CD to any Latin program to help your children remember the various declensions and conjugations. The tunes are familiar: Bingo, If You're Happy and You Know It, Yankee Doodle and the Wheels on the Bus are a few. I think this would even be helpful to more advanced Latin students. The book states the songs can be used with younger kids (age 4) as well as older students. The songs can be used to introduce your little ones to Latin, but it may not make sense to them until they have has some practice with the written language. You could have older kids make up their own songs to remember other rules! While the songs are catchy, the book has clear and simple pages to go with each song/rule. There are 29 songs/rules in all. The CD has both the Classical (songs 1-29) and the Ecclesiastical (songs 30-58) pronunciations followed by music only versions that you could use to test the kids to see if they can sing the rules without the words. A helpful audio component to round out any quality Latin course. 33pp, pb, with audio CD . ~ Sara

    Teaching classical music to younger students can be a challenge, but many have found Susan Hammand's Classical Kids series to be a great way to introduce the music and composers to kids. This Teaching Edition is amazing because it packages everything from the series on 14 disks. It includes the 9 CDs (Mr. Bach Comes to Call, Beethoven Lives Upstairs, Hallelujah Handel, Mozart's Magic Fantasy, Mozart's Magnificent Voyage, Tchaikovsky Discovers America, Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery, Daydreams and Lullabies, and Song of the Unicorn), 2 DVDs (Mr. Bach Comes to Call and Beethoven Lives Upstairs), and 3 CD-ROM disks. The CD-ROMs are basically the teacher's resources that can be viewed on-screen or printed out, including Comprehensive Teacher's Notes, scripts for each CD, and slideshow discussion points. Oh yes, I forgot to mention the slideshow DVD, which shows hundreds of pictures of art, architecture, and fashion from the times of the great composers and there's also a music only CD that includes some of the music without the narration. If you're serious about using Classical Kids to teach your students, this bundled edition of the entire series is certainly the way to go. All disks are stored in a hard, durable binder. ~ Rachel

    Handwriting, songs, tongue twisters, colorful cartoon illustrations, dot to dots, & coloring pages! Children practice writing their letters as they write over gray letters with arrows, then practice a few on their own in both upper and lower case. At the bottom of each letter page is an activity, like looking for pictures in magazines of things that start with C or describing a hairy horse with words that start with H like hungry or happy. Give this to a young learner to reinforce your curriculum and jumpstart independent learning or use it to introduce a little one to writing their letters. Interactive music CD includes 12 songs with lyrics and workbook answers on pdf files. 48pp ~ Sara

    At least three music courses (for beginners – either in age or experience) in one user-friendly, family-oriented package: music appreciation/history, reading music, and making/enjoying music. We all have this nagging idea that we really ought to be doing something about music but don't know exactly what. Or perhaps you're one of those moms who recognize that there are tremendous advantages for your children (spiritually, emotionally and mentally) when enjoying music is part of your daily lives but you can't imagine how you'll fit one more thing into your busy lives and homes. Marcia Washburn makes it easy for us by leading us step-by-step and providing a wealth of online resources to broaden that experience. You don't need to be able to read music or recognize one composer from another or spend a lot of money or time gathering resources. The author even assures us that this product has been "field-tested to ensure that musically illiterate adults can confidently use it with their children."

    Beethoven Who? is an ebook, or in other words, pdf files on CD-ROM, readable from your computer. This ebook-on-CD format is perfect for providing quality information, hands-on activities, games, reproducible listening sheets and listening suggestions in an affordable package. AND, there are links – lots of links – to quality internet sources for listening to orchestra-performed and artist-performed pieces (classical, traditional, folk, patriotic, and sacred music). Many of the listening links also provide video footage so you get a great view of each instrument in the orchestra. As we mentioned earlier, coverage of all things introductory and basic to music appreciation and enjoyment are included. The first section – Listening to Music – provides an overview of the elements of music (terms and basic info) followed by a period-by-period examination of major composers, musical instruments, historical setting, and notable pieces. In this section are briefly annotated (the author tells what to expect and look for) links to orchestras performing various pieces as well as video re-enactments such as costumed musicians playing period instruments while floating on the Thames River in England and even flash mob versions. The links are designed to build in you and your children appreciation for the music involved and to just plain enjoy a huge variety of musical experiences. In this section you'll find descriptions of the various periods (Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Impressionistic, and Twentieth Century), short biographical sketches (with full-color pictures) of the major composers within each, examples of their major works, and lots of interesting odds and ends about both composers and works. To give you just a bit of an idea of the care that has gone into making the video link selections, consider the Flight of the Bumblebee (a work of the Romantic period composer Rimsky-Korsakov). Links for this piece include an orchestra (so you can see how fast their fingers need to move), the record-holder for the fastest violin version, a master violinist (Perlman) performance, a number of solo instruments each playing the piece (oboe, bassoon, clarinet, soprano recorder, and tuba), a Canadian Brass comedic version, a Disney cartoon shortened version, and, lastly, a boogie-woogie rendition on the piano. Notes on these links include observing that at 1:55 the pianist is smiling at an audience member (boogie-woogie) and a caution not to read the comments on the clarinet link (inappropriate content).

    The second section – Reading Music – covers all the basics providing a wealth of reinforcing activities. Reproducible masters are often included for memory games or bingo, for instance, as well as using a variety of rudimentary, homemade musical instruments (toilet paper tube maracas, oatmeal container drums, metal bottle cap tambourines, and a drinking glass orchestra – all instructions included). Music Reading, Pitch, Rhythm, and Dynamics are all covered. Activities are easy and fun to do and will involve your entire family in a musical exploration adventure.

    Section 3 – Making Music – transported me back to my grade school days and had me agreeing with the author that American folk and traditional songs – once learned in elementary school music classes like mine – are disappearing from our culture. You'll appreciate her determination not to let that happen as you listen through her list of not-to-be-missed songs: action songs (London Bridge), love/friendship songs (Bicycle Built for Two), animal songs (Itsy, Bitsy Spider), work songs (I've Been Working on the Railroad), patriotic songs (America the Beautiful), and sacred songs (hymns such as A Mighty Fortress and children's songs such as Jesus Loves the Little Children). Trust me, I've only scratched the surface of her many, many suggestions here. Again, there are a multitude of annotated links and often, historical and cultural anecdotes. She ends this section with suggestions for ways you can make music together as a family and ways to incorporate musical experiences into your everyday family life. A series of appendices include How to Use the Links in the Book, an Elements of Music Chart, a master for Sample Listening Sheets, a Resources list, and a Glossary of Terms. There is also a complete index for the entire e-book./

    You can probably tell that I'm excited about the potential of this product to open the lives of our children to musical experiences, some noble, some mundane. There's over 300 pages of musical information, countless links, reproducibles, and, most importantly, the sense that "I can do this!" ~ Janice

    Music history was probably one of the most difficult parts of my musical education. The textbooks were always so dry and seemed irrelevant. This, thankfully, is not the case here. This book presents the history of music with an approachable mix of material: an occasional look at the science behind sound and how waves and pitches travel, informative text, quotations, hands-on activities, songs and playlists on YouTube accessible via QR codes (Parents, you may want to check that the links are still valid before handing them over to students. QR codes are easily scan-able via free apps available through phone or tablet’s app store. Just search for QR Code Reader).

    As the text progresses through history, the focus is on analyzing the influences and the components of music. Start with folk music which came to the U.S. from England as well as songs sung by slaves and then progress to the patriotic music during the late 1700s and early 1800s. Move to the jazz, blues and country sounds of the Roaring Twenties; the effects of the World Wars on music as well as social justice issues during the 1950s, and the evolution of rock and hip hop and lastly, to modern-day music.

    While not divided into any sort of lesson plans, this could make for a fun course of study if your children are particularly music minded. Parents could even use this as a great supplemental resource to an American history program with a little planning ahead. 120 softcover pages. – Laura
