Beginner's Guide to Reading Music Easy to Use, Easy to Learn; A Simple Introduction for All Ages by Jake Jackson

The perfect companion to Chords for Kids and My First Recorder Music , this is the ideal guide for those who may enjoy playing instruments, but have not yet mastered how to read music from the page. It is ideal for any age, but especially for children between 8 and 10 years old. This guide provides the essentials you need to know, explaining pitch, the treble clef, the bass clef, rhythm, accidentals, key signatures and time signatures. You can then practise what you have learnt with the 'Play Along' sections containing simple, well-known examples of music. It comes with helpful diagrams, clear accessible text and a practical spiral-bound format.
