Little Music Stars
Pre-Kinder Piano Instruction for ages 4-6
Very Small Children ages 4-6 begin to learn how to play the piano by finger numbers and note values. Music Theory is taught through fun stories, games and coloring using the famous Alfred method; Music for Little Mozarts.
Music for Little Mozarts
Music for Little Mozarts has four levels. Most
students complete the series in approximately two
years. Three correlating books at each level guide
the children through a comprehensive approach to
Music Lesson Books introduce students to
new musical concepts as they follow the story of
Beethoven Bear™, Mozart Mouse and their Music
Friends™. Piano pieces are sequentially introduced
throughout the story
adventure. Music Workbooks contain pages to color that
reinforce the musical concepts introduced in the
Music Lesson Books.
The Music Lesson Books
The Music Lesson Book is the core of the course. Students are introduced to new musical concepts and the performance of pieces at the piano. The story of Beethoven Bear and Mozart Mouse™ sets the stage for music study at the beginning and continues on each subsequent page. Other characters throughout the book serve as a springboard for introducing students to major composers from the four main musical style periods.
New concepts are introduced and carefully reinforced throughout the book. Each page contains a fragment of the story as background for each new concept or new piece of music, as well as practice instructions to read to the student. Many pages also offer helpful hints to the teacher and parents for effective instruction and practice.
The music was written to develop finger dexterity in young children and includes clever lyrics that will appeal to the student's imagination. Accompaniments for the teacher or parent are notated for each piece.
