       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

    Learning new things is easier for young students when tied in to a common theme. That's why unit studies are so popular and successful. So what about Galloping the Globe? It's a unit study centered around geography. It encourages a detailed look at a selection of countries from the six populated continents as well as the North and South Poles and Christmas around the world. Using the countries being studied geographically as the basic platform, the authors have included ideas and references, projects and activities for integrating Bible, people/history, science, literature, vocabulary, internet sources, maps & flags, cooking, music/art, games, puzzles, and crafts into the curriculum. An aspect to this unit study which is similar to the Trail Guide to… series is the student notebook approach, where the child will actually produce a notebook full of art projects, reports, biographies, geographic dictionary pages, and much more. This is intended to be something they can show to other people, reinforcing and reviewing what they have learned as they explain various facts to friends and family. This is a fairly flexible course, with a full study of every topic listed taking between two and three years to complete. You can also pick and choose projects to simply make this a year long course. While geography is the main focus of this unit study, it does a good job of including the resources needed to study the other subjects, too. Answers are included and the consumable work pages are reproducible (and are also now found on the included CD-ROM in PDF format, which makes it even easier to use with multiple children). There are several recommended resources which are used multiple times throughout the course. If you are interested in purchasing these, please see below. Items without prices are those that we do not currently carry. The resource list has been recently revised to accommodate for items that were going out of print, and several new resources have been added. This is the newest version, revised in 2010 with a CD-ROM of printable forms, activity sheets, maps and flags. CD is Win/Mac compatible; requires Adobe Reader (a free download). 266 pgs, pb. ~ Zach

    I really enjoyed reading about the hymns in this book when I noticed some of my favorites. Each of the 11 featured hymns is introduced in four pages. The first two pages give a brief but informative history of the hymn, highlighting the composer/song writer, their lives, and interesting facts about the song. It also lists other songs by the same people. The third page holds the sheet music for the hymn, in simple, easy-to-play arrangements. The last page of each section varies, containing word searches, scrambles, crosswords, pictures, and other activities to review the information. - Melissa

    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

    In this endearing tale by the author of Babe, the human and mouse worlds musically interact.

Proof that though you are small, you can accomplish great deeds. A literature choice for Lightning Literature, grade 2. 67 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

     If you’ve ever wanted to learn the drums, here’s a great tool to get you started! While I admit I’m no drummer, after watching the video tracks and following along in the book I can clearly see how this program would easily translate to a solid foundation of playing percussion when followed thoroughly and practiced frequently. Starting with the high hats, students will learn to play simple beats, slowly adding in coordination drills and other drums one by one before moving to more complicated rhythms and syncopation. The black and white book doesn’t look like much with few photos and simple sheet music, but after flipping through the course and watching the included videos, I am definitely tempted to try it out myself! Note: The video disc should be played on a computer, and some video tracks (I found 2) were mislabeled and did not match the songs in the book. 67 softcover pages. – Laura

    Neither intensive nor too informal, this curriculum strikes an excellent balance in beginning instruction. Lessons focus on reading skills, but also incorporate math, science, Bible, art, character development, creative thinking and childrens literature. There are 26 thematic units total, with each unit taking five days to complete. Daily lessons will take 60-90 minutes.

    Beginning reading lessons are systematic and thorough, using tactile, visual and auditory methods to teach children letters and letter sounds. The corresponding letter flashcards are beautifully illustrated with animals and other items from Gods creation. Letters are not introduced in alphabetical order, but in an order to facilitate early blending into words (for early reinforcement of phonetic skills) and to correspond with elements of creation. (For example, S is introduced first along with a science lesson about the Sun. Students also construct a sundial, make raisins, paint a sun and see how, like the sun, Jesus is the light of the world.) Textured letters are integral to the lessons (see below), as are the flashcards. Handwriting is also incorporated as are various games, songs, drawing, cut & paste, and other reinforcing activities. By lesson 6, children begin blending letter sounds into simple words. By the end, they'll be reading simple stories. Each unit also has a recommended children's literature title. Math concepts include counting, writing numerals, charts and graphs, sequencing, comparing, classifying, ordinal numbers, fractions (whole and half), time, money, and simple addition/subtraction. Science topics match the illustrations on the alphabet flashcards and consist of objects that can be observed in nature.

    The Limited Ed. Package includes the Teacher's Manual; student sheets; alphabet flashcards, Lauri lower-case alphabet puzzle; What Really Happened to the Dinosuars?; For the Children's Sake; Cuisenaire Rods; Cuisenaire Rods Alphabet Book; Say Hello to Classical Music; an inflatable globe and the MFW Kindergarten Literature Collection with 26 stories to be used with the units. Ant Hill and Butterfly Garden kits are not included in the kits but highly recommended for customers in the 48 states. Both insect kits are also available from us separately.

       Make it easy for beginning pianists to identify notes – without damaging your piano! This 5” tall piece of cardstock fits behind the black keys of most keyboards and accommodates all piano sizes (though you will need to trim it for those with fewer than 88 keys). It serves as a backboard to help students identify notes and shows what each note looks like on sheet music. The best part is that it easily removes when the student has outgrown it, or when a more experienced student has their turn to practice and should be challenged to remember note names themselves. You can’t do that with the traditional sticker method! The backside is printed with handy references including the circle of fifths and theory basics. – 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

    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.)

      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.

    If you’re looking for a guitar curriculum that focuses on learning to read sheet music rather than focusing on chords, this is the approach for you. 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

    The 88 selections in this collection are chosen especially for the beginning pianist and are arranged by composer. They range from 1-page renditions like Brahms’ “Piano Quintet” and a Gregorian chant to the 6-page “The Waltz of the Flowers.” I’ve had the past experience that some beginning arrangements stay stuck in one level and deemphasize the bass clef. This collection, however, includes a variety and provides a good balance of bass and treble clef. Suggested fingerings and a Glossary of Musical Terms is included. Six pages for notetaking is reserved at the back. 8.25” x 11”, 128 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    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
