I have been using Lina Ng’s Theory Made Easy sticker book for my students for over ten years now and whilst it is one of the best theory books I have come across for students age 4+, it was a welcome discovery at the local music shop this morning when I found a new book. The book Music Theory For Young Children – Book 1 is by Ying Ying Ng and costs £4.95.
This book has the all-important stickers, but goes at a much slower pace, so is even better suited to younger students age 3+. A lot of time is spent on learning how to recognise the first 7 letters of the alphabet. Minimal writing skills are required as there are plenty of stickers to use instead of having to write the letter names.
There are 4 volumes available instead of the 2 volumes of Lina Ng’s Theory Made Easy book. These all follow the tried and tested sticker format. After this, students will be ready to start working on a Grade 1 theory exam book.
