What I really liked about the book it was really fun learning new songs and notes. My favourite song was “Moving” because I really felt comfortable with it and I like the beat of it a lot.
This book is an interesting, fun and persuading book that is very entertaining. There are many songs to learn and it comes with a CD to practise with at home. The illustrations are amazing and look cartoony. The book looks great with illustrations.
The stories are cool in the songs and it’s lots of fun.
What I like about this book is there is plenty of repetition that young people need to help the notes “sink in” in relation to their staff position/fingerboard position/duration, and to develop fine motor skills. Many of the books currently available move too quickly onto difficult material before consolidating prior work. Listening to the teacher playing develops aural skills. The “rest bars” when the teacher is playing allow the students’ hands to relax briefly to avoid strain. The questions provided in the book are useful to make sure young players understand what they are doing. Young children enjoy music games and they like to answer the questions and perform the tasks provided on the flash cards.
My son, Phoenix has been learning guitar using “Copy, Play and Learn” for the past six months. He has learnt so much in such a short period of time and has a great time as well! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn music properly whilst having fun.
