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 fun software helps children learn to really hear music through four
different games. Each game helps train children's ears to identify different
parts of music, detect the nuances in a melody, and notice changes in rhythm
and other subtleties worked into famous pieces by Mozart, Schumann, and
Beethoven. The graphics look like something a child might "draw" on a computer
program, with colorful scenes, balloons, people, and more. Each game progresses
in difficulty with four different levels. In the first game, children compare
two similar music clips and decide whether they are the same or different. In
the later levels, they must also decide how they are different - if the second
melody is higher or lower, faster or slower, or played backwards or upside
down. In the second game, children match music clips, first identifying which
two out of three are the same, and later matching a music clip to a similar but
slightly different clip. The next game allows children to put a melody into the
proper order. First, they listen to the complete melody. Then, they listen to
the pieces and put them in the correct order on the train. They can listen to
their melody and the original as many times as they need to. Lastly, children
are introduced to reading music in the fourth game. Here, two excerpts of sheet
music are shown. When children click on the play button, they decide which
piece of sheet music is the one being played. Even if they have no experience
reading music, they can learn to follow the notes (higher or lower), rhythm
(frequency of notes) or other clues to help them "read" the music and match it
to the melody. This game has eight levels of difficulty, four at the beginning
level and four at the advanced level. Another feature is the About Music
section, which is an illustrated audio lecture that discusses questions about
music. Though recommended for ages 8 and up, younger children will probably be
able to work through at least the first level or two if they are interested.

What I would have given to have this as a young piano student! If your little Mozart has a hard time keeping track of their multiple note flashcards, this is the perfect solution. The heavy-duty laminated sheet has a blank staff ranging from B2 to D6. Firmly attached to a clear cord is a black plastic quarter note that slides up and down to be any note. “But what about the stem being on the wrong side?” you might ask. Don’t worry; the note spins (though it might be a bit tricky for little ones to rotate) so that the stem is on the correct side, adding another element to quiz your student about. Parents, want to help quiz your child but don’t know how to read music? Not a problem! On the card’s back, the note moves up and down in correspondence to the front-facing note and labels indicate the note’s name. A valuable tool for anyone looking to improve their note identification skills. – Laura

Anyone can play great sounding music on these wooden harps. You just slide your sheet of music between the strings and wood. The notes show up directly under the corresponding strings, so even younger people can easily play songs. The harp comes with twelve songs, a tuner, an extra wire, and a pick. Please note that you can also purchase additional accessories separately below. The "pick pack" includes a pick, a small tuner, and spare wire. The pick clip is a pick attached with a non-removable string to a small clip, allowing you to clip it directly onto your harp so you can easily keep track of it. - Melissa

These are not what you think of when you see “bells;” these look more like individual xylophone pieces. The set contains 8 notes in a rainbow of colors, and they produce delightful, melodious sounds. The bells are contained in a yellow carrying case with a handle, which also holds the two included mallets. Leave the set in the case to play or remove it into different configurations or split it up between children.

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

This guitar book instructs in the classical approach. Start out with the very basics of the instrument ad how to hold and tune the guitar. Then the 16 lessons utilize a combination of scale and warm up exercises, and a combination of folk, classical and sacred music to learn how to read sheet music. 70 spiral bound pages. – Laura

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.)

This is so much fun, I could hardly put it down! Compose Yourself is a deck of 60 cards printed on a transparent plastic. On each card is a grouping of notes (A measure in 4/4 time) arranged in a seemingly random order. However, you can rotate them 180 degrees and get a new grouping of notes. Flip them over to the backside, and you get two more different measures. Even though there are 60 cards, it’s almost like getting 240 cards!
Each card position has a code number in the top right corner. You can go on the publisher’s website, enter the codes in any order you like (Up to 16 codes, 4 rows of 4 measures), and hit play. Your composition will come to life as you hear a full symphony, marimba, or both play your song! I grabbed four cards at random, and used every position of the four cards. The resulting song was so pretty and soothing, and it was so easy! The website allows you to tweak your composition as you go by selecting each card individually and allowing you to digitally flip or rotate it with ease. You can even save the song to review later, download an MP3, or print sheet music! I recommend having a piece of paper nearby so you can write down the codes for your favorite sounds, but it’s likely you will love them all. What a fun gift for the young music lover or aspiring young composer! Includes 60 cards in a drawstring storage pouch. - Laura

Although there are a lot of educational songs written to help students learn a new language, most of these focus on isolated words like numbers, days of the week, and basic words. This unique song and activity book includes songs for these words, but also features songs on Spanish sounds, grammar, pronunciation, parts of speech and more. Most songs are accompanied by a lesson and activity sheet, which explain the concept and offer examples in both Spanish and English. The songs are catchy, lively, and feature toe-tapping rock beats and guitars. I have to warn that you just may get some of these stuck in your head (especially the "-ar Verb Song"). 15 songs are included, which cover days of the week, weather, helping verbs, questions, stress and accents in words, masculine and feminine endings, times of the day, family words, -ar verbs, time words, words for different forms of "you", pronunciations, direct objects, and more. The exercises and examples that accompany the songs are excellent, and offer the student more practice and variety of examples than the songs alone can offer. Teaching tips, suggestions for games and other activities have been included as well, offering you additional options for covering the material. Although not a complete Spanish course, these songs and activities will help students to remember details about grammar, sentence structure and words that could otherwise fall through the cracks! - Jess

There's something so soothing about strumming an instrument. This ukulele provides the perfect outlet for those restless fingers. I tuned the ukulele first, which was easy using the included pitch pipe and instructions. Then I practiced playing the 20 different chords from the instruction sheet. This ukulele is good quality for the price. It has a wooden (compressed) body , the strings are made of strong plastic, and the other components (like the tuners and frets) are made of metal or plastic. It provides a pleasant tone when played, with a nice round depth and warmth to its sound. The ukulele measures about 21" long and 2.5" thick. You'll have hours of fun with this jovial little instrument! –Chad

Need more than a basic staff sheet to compose your song? The Song Writer's Notebook gives you a two-page spread to help puzzle out those rhythms in your head, with separate areas for the disparate elements of a song. The left side has a place for the name and date, then six staves for recording the verse, chorus, and bridge; below that is a box for the chord progression. The right side has an inspirational quote from a musician at the top, followed by lines for lyrics, and at the bottom notes for tempo, transitions, overall feel, and chord voicings. After you've gotten the elements of the song down, the back half has a place for putting them all together, with staves, lines for lyrics, and your own thoughts on the song. The next big hit is begging to be pieced together in these sheets. About 120 pgs, softcover. ~ Mark

What tools do you use when you read? Background music? Post-it notes? Highlighter? Do you like to read small chunks at a time? Or spend hours? Middle school and high school students are usually still figuring out exactly what tools work best for them – and if they need different tools for different types of reading. In a humorous, conversational manner written directly to the student, the reader has the opportunity to examine a myriad of tools that various people use to make reading more profitable. Each tool/skill is dissected and taken in small chunks with Let's Practice! exercises at regular intervals. Chapters conclude by asking the student to reflect on what he has learned followed by a collection of review questions labeled "Brain Ticklers." (Answers for these are on the following page.) For instance, the chapter on Different Types of Reading focuses on reading textbooks. Students are encouraged to start by looking at how the textbook is set up and then are given specific strategies for textbook reading. The SQ3R method (Survey, Question, Read, Record, Review) is covered thoroughly as well as the idea of using a textbook response sheet. And the book is packed with practical ideas for conquering reading skills – graphic organizers, helpful hints, and mnemonic devices, to name just a few. With reading passages and questions as well, this book is more than a supplement; rather, it is like a study skills class for the wanting-to-succeed student or the need-to-catch-up student. 210 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
