Composition for Young Musicians promotes the natural creativity in every child and perfectly supplements any young student's first piano lessons. No prior knowledge of music is needed to begin exploring creatively. Composition for Young Musicians captivates the intellect and imagination, filled with fun, creative musical activities like making musical instruments from objects found in the kitchen, drawing pictures of what is heard on the included CD, and choosing musical notes by rolling the dice! At the same time, the student becomes more intimate with the piano keyboard through activities like writing a "Piece for Black Keys" and composing scary music for "The Haunted Piano."
Composition for Young Musicians will open every student's mind, body, ears, and eyes to sources of inspiration all around. Learning to compose music has never been so much fun! For ages 5 to 12. 48 pages with CD.
