How will my children learn to read music?

Many children play all the tunes in the Play Your Ocarina books simply by following the charts; they then go on to read music easily. This is because reading the charts gives them confidence and the music above the charts becomes a familiar friend. Use ‘1-2-3 Ocarina’ alongside Play Your Ocarina – Book 1 to teach the names of the first 10 ocarina-notes and learning to recognise them on the musical stave – and read rhythms too. This method works with everyone – whether a child in Year 1 or an adult having to teach music for the first time!
