A fun and imaginative way to for little ones to sound big! Great for Recitals or just technique practice, every piece is constructed of major triads! You'll find a wide range of style and mood, from the delicate pretty harmonies of Faerie Dust, the pounding rhythm of Tribal Dance, upbeat marches like Hero's March and Space Adventure, the eerie sounds of Magic Spell to the sweet harmonies of Cotton Candy. Ideal for early levels at any age, these pieces are easily learned, easy to teach, but sound difficult. What more could a teacher ask for!
