Designed for the absolute beginner, covering breathing, posture, and tone production along with an introduction to the basics of reading music and copying melodies by ear. Tips for public performance is included. You will also receive free online access to video and audio for all the examples in the book.
These courses are also for the very beginner, but they target older beginners, especially teenagers. The books are not jazzed up at all; they are filled solely with text and music. Although they target a slightly older crowd, they do not assume any previous knowledge and the instruction is given in an easy to follow format. Musical notation, rhythm, and note reading are covered as students progress through the course. Each book includes audio and video with all of the music from the books showing you exactly how to play each piece.
