Flute Zoo Book 2
Flute Zoo Book 2, By Kathy Blocki
Flute Zoo Books are the new fun, and engaging way to learn to play the flute. These books, with their bright colors and cheerful imagery, were written with elementary age flute students in mind, although we have found that older children (and even adults) love the fun songs and activities as well! Each book is between 32 and 40 pages long. So the new flutist will gain a strong sense of accomplishments as they more quickly earn their certificate for Flute Zoo book one.
Flute Zoo Book 2
Book 2 begins with the notes C, B, A, G and F in both octaves. By the end of this 32 page books, students will have mastered from low E through high G, plus the notes that they already play in both octaves. In other words, students will have the satisfaction of being able to play many familiar melodies such as Happy Birthday and Mexican Hat Dance.
Many of the two page spreads are theme based. The opening pages feature an inspiring jungle theme. The first piece is Rounds of Tropical Rains with trils to represent the rain. Next is Treetop Slumbers with the sloth hanging from a branch. A pythom slinkes across the bottom of the page as the students are inspired to play the mysterious Perilous Pythons. A spinder monkey swings from a branch on the opposite page while students play Flying High and the all time favorite piece--Jungle Clown. The books continues with themed pages design to inspire students to portray the the ideas through the music. Each page is carefully sequenced to introduce new notes iand concepts so that students advance as smoothly as possible. Careful review is build into the book to insure mastery of the concepts.
