Unlock your musicianship by decoding and creating musical messages. The 20 songs in Music Code-Cracker will surprise and delight, opening your eyes and ears to new dimensions of music and music-making.
Music Code-Cracker starts simply with easy-to-play songs on just a few notes, and familiar tunes that are instantly recognisable. Happy Birthday, The Wheels on the Bus and the theme from Beethoven's 5th Symphony are just three pieces to play, each with a surprising twist: What do Beethoven and Morse code have in common? What happens when we change a familiar tune into a minor key? How does sound communicate?
Become a musical detective! Create your own 'Signature Tune' and musical fingerprint. Learn to improvise and enjoy guided composition, playing along with the supportive, superbly musical, backings.
Listen to the CD to solve listening quiz puzzles. Then sing and play, guided by ocarina fingercharts and staff notation. This is a Music Book, Spy Book and Discovery Book all in one volume!
Use this book for the whole class band: ocarinas, recorders, tin whistles, flutes, fifes, violins, ukuleles, guitars, class percussion... and voices too!
