This book was written to help the beginner, whether child or adult, learn to play music in a simple and easy way that requires no knowledge of reading music. Just by following the circles with letters, you will sound like an experienced musician. Playing music can be as simple and enjoyable as a game. That is our goal to give you what’s necessary to play beautiful music while having fun.
We offer a lot of activities that can be done with any percussion instrument or any sound made with home utensils, for example, while listening to the story. This fairy tale encourages a child’s musical activity, even if they have never played music before. German composer Orff believed that each child should not be a passive listener, but an active co-creator. Not only can you and your kids play using a percussion instrument musical set, but also with any other musical sounds you can come up with.
We hope you'll enjoy these funny kids songs and percussion music actions and activities.
