    You can always trust Calvert School to give you a comprehensive course packaged with all the bells and whistles. In this case, it's a lap harp, triangle, and flutophone. Intending the student's musical education to go beyond "textbook" learning and to experience the joy of music-making, everything is provided: instructional DVDs, an easy-to-use teacher's manual, and instruments. Short (about 10 minutes), instructional video segments – 32 in all – cover the basics of music: each family of instruments and the orchestra, introduction to the various components of music – rhythm, melody, tempo, and dynamics – and an introduction to several important composers as well as introductory instructions for playing the included instruments. All instruction is interlaced with enjoyable music – sometimes classical, sometimes folk tunes, sometimes instrumental, sometimes vocal. Students are encouraged and empowered to sing and play along. The well-designed teacher's manual makes it easy – even for the non-musical parent – to incorporate a fun, musical element into school days. Each lesson (one per week) lists objectives, provides words for sing-along songs, introduces the video segment, and follows this up with teaching instruction (well delineated but not scripted). Instrument instruction and practice is labeled "Performance Activities" and accompanies each lesson, as does an Activity Sheet. [Although the copyright does not allow for the reproduction of these sheets, it would be easy to complete them orally or to cover with a clear sheet protector and complete with dry erase marker in order to keep the manual as a non-consumable.] Sheet music is provided for the lap harp. The teacher's manual includes instructions for the flutophone. Musical scores for the various songs are also included.

    This course is so complete and thorough (not to mention a fun and enjoyable introduction to music) that I hate to include any caveats, but I feel compelled to present a complete and accurate picture of the course. The Melody Lane setting - reminiscent of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood – has a slightly dated appearance. Likewise, there are little reminders that video production has greatly improved in recent years. For instance, the vocal music instructor has a lovely voice and engaging manner and obviously knows her material thoroughly. However, I personally found it distracting to realize that she was not actually playing the piano accompaniment (only "playing" the air above the keys). Young children are much more forgiving on these types of idiosyncrasies and would probably just be focused on making music! [Wooden Lap Harp dimensions: 12" bottom; 7" top. Flutophone is 11," plastic, with seven holes. Metal Triangle is 6".] ~ Janice

    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

    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

    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. System requirements: Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP/Vista, 12 MB hard drive space, 8 MB RAM, sound card with speakers. Mac OS X, OS 9, and OS 8, 12 MB hard drive space, 8 MB RAM, external speakers. - Melissa

    When we learn our ABCs we learn a song, as it is one of the easiest ways to remember. The same is true when you learn Greek! This simple sheet music has all twenty-four letters of the Greek Alphabet set to an easy-to-learn tune. Before you know it, you and your children will be singing the Greek letters from Alpha to Omega without a hitch! The sheet music provides the melody as well as chords to allow you to accompany the song with either the piano or guitar. Who knew learning Greek could be so much fun!

    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

    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
