  • March 12, 2008 Great for Group Classes!

    This is the perfect method book series for very young beginners. As a teacher, I find that they are especially effective for use in group classes of 2-4 students. Fun pictures, lots of activities, short & simple songs. Concepts are introduced sooner and in a different order than other method...

    books. Students learn more advanced rhythms and concepts while keeping the material simple.
