Description Description

From the The Story Orchestra series, a beautifully illustrated first piano sound book! Press the keys to learn 8 famous classical tunes from The Nutcracker as you follow the story.

While other books in the series play famous pieces of classical music, in this new Story Orchestra format, young readers can now play the tunes themselves!
Colour and shape codes correspond to the 14 keys, so kids can learn easy 8-bar, one-finger melodies, so even the youngest child can learn to play music with this simple method. For best results, playing readers the original piece first is recommended so children can familiarise themselves with the pacing of the tune.
Each song includes an enchanting illustration and description of the part of the story that the music is telling, along with playing tips. All the favourite characters from The Nutcracker story are there to encourage young musicians as they play their first notes with the sound of a piano.
