This book is a music method to teach the notes to 5 to 8 years old children in a fun way. It can be useful to initiate students in several instruments like the guitar, recorder, violin and piano, because it refers to the notes in G cleft. It would be great to make in class a little band with different instruments playing all at the same time.
The best thing is that one teacher explains in the classroom the book "La Cascada, lección de música para los niños" to the students, it could be in private lessons or in a school classroom. The first day of class the teacher could read the story for them and play the music with a guitar, recorder, violin or piano like a little concert, so children would know the book they are going to learn. That would take 20 minutes although, once the concert is over, children could talk and debate about the story and for example how it ends. In fact there aren't goods or bads in the tale. The main character learns something new, develops a new attitude to music and grows as a person.
Likewise, when students know the book, they could play the music and even some of them the story and its characters in front of their parents.More recommendations:
