Magnificent Music Book by Kate Petty


Magnificent Music Book by Kate Petty

Six lively spreads simplifying the seemingly complicated laws and language of music. Children start to make music from a very early age, so by the time they are 6 or 7 they are ready to grapple with notation. In fact the reader of this book can open it with no knowledge of musical notation and close it with a real understanding of music on the page. An entertaining and absorbing read with ingenious pop-ups and moving parts. This book will launch you into a musical world.


A fantastic interactive guide ... the quality of the pop-ups is excellent The Bookseller
