1-2-3 Ocarina Teacher is designed to be used together with the colourful class music book 1-2-3 Ocarina. It has been written to enable you to:
1 introduce Ocarina-playing to your pupils
2 teach the reading of musical notation and rhythms
3 increase instrumental music-making in your school
The first 10 Ocarina Notes are introduced one-by-one through 31 catchy songs specially written for English Ocarinas.
'1-2-3 Ocarina Teacher' supports note-by-note ocarina teaching. Note names, values and general musicianship are taught at the same time as playing these delightful tunes.
The 64-page A4 book has practical tips and ideas on how to include percussion and other instruments: ukulele/guitar chords are given, along with piano accompaniments and two audio CDs. Ocarinas, recorders, tin whistles, fifes, violins and more can play along with these inspirational CDs, reading from the pages of the '1-2-3 Ocarina' Class Music Book.
Even the youngest of children will soon play Ocarinas well, reading from the musical stave. Juniors / lower secondary students find the presentation appealing and irresistible. Suitable for teaching students aged 4 to 12.
This book will support any teacher, whether they feel “musical” or not.
