Rating
Introduce your children to the beauty of the Cuatro with this easy-to -understand Cuatro for Kids. A book that's packed with loads of fun, it makes learning the Puerto Rican Cuatro an amazing experience. Authored by noted Cuatro player, Samuel Ramos, the book is a fine testament to his level of expertise and the delight he takes in the Cuatro is evident in its pages! Most master performers find their niche in life at a very tender age. Give your gifted child that chance to blossom into a great musician. (We must say though, every child is different and buying this book is not a guarantee of an instant creation of a master musician!). Loads of practice and dedication are important in the process and we provide the right source material to boost that process. This book is a worthy guide to introduce the gorgeous Cuatro, an important Puerto Rican legacy. With songs like 'Mary had a little lamb', 'Ode to Joy' and 'Jingle Bells', kids will find their favorites in this book, making learning even more enjoyable! The book also provides activity worksheets for the children to fill in so they can retain and revise what they have learnt the fun way. Written in the standard notation format, this book features a bigger font for notations, devised for easy reading by young musicians-in-the-making. (Yes, we've thought of everything!) Starting with basic music theory, the book teaches about music scales, first position notes and chords among other things in an easy-to-follow language. If your child is comfortable with Spanish, then look no further, for the entire book is written in two languages - English and Spanish. Being bilingual, the book allows a child to choose whatever language he/she is comfortable in, all the while giving your child lessons in a different language as well. So you have a double benefit hidden in the pages of the book. Features: -Easy-to-follow instructions -Bi-lingual -English and Spanish -Bigger font size for notation facilitates easy reading -Good source material for young learners -Just right for tender, creative minds! A great gift for your nephew/niece on the next 'parranda', this set is a treasure trove of knowledge that will set a young, creative mind on the path of musical discoveries.
