Simple music notation is printed at the bottom of each song and shows the notes that the child should play on their guitar. With the help of a guitar teacher or a parent that has some guitar knowledge, a young beginner has a high rate of success using this method book. After trying several childrenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s method books without much success author, Kelly Weeks decided to create this book. He believes that learning to play music is similar to learning to speak, imitation should precede basic reading and writing skills. He developed this book as an answer for children 4 and up who truly want to play guitar but may not be ready to read music notation.
You don't see the music notation at the bottom of each page? Every song has lyrics and the music notation below marked "piano 1" and "piano 2." You should have also received the audio jam tracks for each song. Does this make sense?
