From the publisher: Designed to provide sample month-by-month and yearly plans for each grade level from one to six, this step-by-step guide features a collection of more than 200 songs—many of which are new to the Third Edition—organized precisely in the sequence of the Kodaly Method. It presents a highly sequential music program in which singing, moving, listening, musical reading and writing, improvising and composing are the means through which children develop skills and acquire knowledge about melody, harmony, rhythm, form, tempo, timbre, and dynamics. -->
From the publisher: During the past ten years a "Suzuki Explosion" has taken place in the musical life of the United states. More than 100,000 children, aged three and up, have been taught to play the violin, piano, cello, and flute through the method conceived by Dr. Shinicki Suzuki. Their facility has amazed most observers. They have demonstrated musical skills, improved learning ability, and a deeper relationship with their parents, teachers, and communities. Their talents stand as tributes to the Japanese violin master who is one of the giants in the field of early education.
