Music Time-Traveller *NEW*
21 songs from Stone Age to Space Age
Travel through 42,050 years of musical history from Stone Age to Space Age and into the future. Time travel is the last adventure of the human race – so get onboard for this amazing journey!
Play and sing epic tunes of the Maya, Greeks, Ancient Egyptians and of medieval minstrels, jazz jivers and disco divas.
Each song evokes a new era and is accurately dated with a timeline from 40,000 BC. Not only will you become familiar with the sounds, sights and activities of people through history, you will also learn about the musical instruments they played, how they wrote their music and what it sounded like. The colourful illustrations will help you imagine what these instruments look like and authentic sounds on the CD bring them to life.
Stone Age people made ocarinas and whistles from stone, bone and wood. These songs trace the history of vessel flutes from their earliest origins globally from China and the Americas to Europe and more recently England. The English 4-hole Ocarina, for which these songs are written, is a ‘chameleon’ instrument that it fits in perfectly with each era.
Perform these songs as a continuous narrative and showcase 42,050 years of history ending with ‘Disco Party 2050’. Never before has there been a music book quite like this. All the music is totally accessible for children and teachers alike. Books are as appropriate for 5 year olds as for 15 year olds.

All is cross-referenced to make this a great addition to the history curriculum as well as to music lessons.
