Learn to play simple, well-known tunes on the sturdy keyboard attached to this book. Each note is represented with a different colour, which corresponds to the same colour on the keyboard, allowing even very young children to pick out the tunes. Children will learn to play 10 of the best-known tunes in classical music on the big keyboard in this beautifully illustrated book. Including Chopin's 'Raindrops Prelude', Mendelssohn's Wedding March, Tchaikovsky's 'Sleeping Beauty Waltz', Vivaldi's 'Spring', Haydn's 'Emperor's Hymn', Handel's 'Thine be the Glory', Verdi's ' La Donna è Mobile', Jeremiah Clarke's 'The Prince of Denmark's March', Edvard Grieg's 'Hall of Mountain King' and Dvorak's 'New World Symphony'. This is a perfect introduction to the world of classical music and a great way for children to take their first steps in learning the piano; the big, two-octave keyboard allows children to play two notes at once, expanding the range of tunes they can play. A perfect gift for music-loving children.
