Bonnie Goodrich's books are for very young children (or even adults!) with little or no musical training. The 55 imaginative character pieces encourage a secure development of note and rhythm skills, as well as an understanding of structure and phrasing. The books feature a progressive use of single notes, 2-finger chords, scales, triads, intervals, and arpeggios, with exciting dynamics and phrasing to make the music fun! Kids will also love some of the titles, such as Dancing Dinosaurs, The Ice Cream Waltz, Hiccups, Sneezing Rabbits, Somersaults, and Broccoli. Pieces are in the key of C or 1 flat or 1 sharp, with fingerings and placing brackets indicated. No pedal or sharping lever changes within the pieces. 34 pages, paperbound.
