What a great way to motivate your beginning instrumentalists! Here is a collection of 75 melodies that use only the first six notes learned by students. And it includes a play-along CD. There are classical melodies by Mozart, Offenbach and Brahms, folk tunes from Korea, Japan, Africa and Israel, and even some tunes for the holidays such as, Dreydl, Dreydl; Jingle Bells and Good King Wenceslas! Each book begins with the fingering chart for those six notes on that instrument and each song lists the CD accompaniment track. It couldn't get any easier. No matter what band method your beginner uses, this makes an ideal companion collection.
