Mel Bay Presents a Child's Guide to Rhythm
A coloring and activity book to help children between 5 and 11 years to learn notes and rests. Included are small learning steps and various creative works, puzzles and games of dice with several possibilities to repeat. Beginning with quarters, there are two possible directions: either to the slower notes (half, dotted half and whole notes) or to the faster notes (eighth and sixteenth notes). Both methodic ways are equal. Chapters for the rests have a similar structure. The presentation of new notes and rests combines little vivid tales with moving experiences of the children themselves (clapping, walking, and singing). The volume is suitable for instrumental classes in single lessons as well as in groups and also for foundation classes. A well-devised, and at the same time, very versatile method, which can be used as a permanent assistant to fun and easy success.
