An exciting new approach to playing music. Taking up an instrument usually means a weekly lesson with a teacher, followed by six days of practicing without one. Listen and Play provides an exciting way of keeping up a practice routine at home. The child plays short phrases with the recording which form part of an attractive musical arrangement. To play a tune musically you need first to be able to hear it in your head. Listen and Play offers the beginner a way of achieving this. The child hears a musical phrase on the recording and plays it back. New notes and rhythms soon become fixed in the childs head. Listen and Play is a book and recording, designed to be used together.
