Learn theory as if by magic!Abracadabra Beginning Theory is the ideal workbook to use alongside the best-selling instrumental series. Split into small chunks which can easily be tackled weekly, Abracadabra Theory will take young players from the very basics and give them solid foundations in their musical understanding.
The theory of music is a 'necessary evil' for many young instrumental players. It is often an area which is hurried in preparation for exams, and neglected or feared before that point. It is a key part of a young musician's learning, to help them understand all of the technical terms they encounter in their practical playing.
Following the highly popular Abracadabra instrumental format, Abracadabra Beginning Theory takes the pain away from the process and splits items into small chunks which can easily be tackled along with weekly practice, giving fun and variety in between lessons.
Abracadabra Beginning Theory explains the practical concepts covered in the instrumental books carefully, and provides plenty of exercises and activities to consolidate these and build confidence in young musicians. The theoretical understanding which supports aural skills, sight reading, solo performances and technical exercises, such as scales, is a brilliant addition to any musician's arsenal. Making theory approachable, Abracadabra Beginning Theory is an ideal companion to any of the instrumental repertoire books.
