  • January 02, 2009 Great collection for the very beginner

    These are an excellently done adaptations on the original Charlie Brown Christmas. They are perfect for a student's first or second year Christmas recital. The one and only reason that I would suggest holding it off for the second year is that the student is required to know eighth...

    notes, which most first year students don't. The problem, of course, with waiting is that by the second year most students are beyond 5 finger melodies. However, if you want to do this book before eighth notes are introduced (ie. first year) I suggest teaching the rhythms and note values by rote and using the music to jog their memory about which notes their playing. This is the most effective way of teaching this book that I have found to date.

    This book has a really nice 5-finger arrangement of Fur Elise and Linus and Lucy. I've purchased multiple copies to use year-round.
