Two new 'Young Musician' titles provide 'how to' theory to young picturebook readers, using plenty of photos and color illustration to reinforce a music teacher's guidelines. Paul Archibald's Playing The Trumpet And Brass (1932799605) surveys all the basics; from how a brass instrument produces sounds to its use in various musical genres, and how young players can master first steps to move to more advanced playing. Coverages of everything from instrument sections to embouchure, tonguing, rhythm practice and more provide reinforcing exercises. Same goes for Simon Walton's Playing The Flute, Recorder And Other Woodwind (1032799583), which follows the same organization in presenting step-by-step coverage of mastering the basics of playing. A list of composers and performers, glossary and index round out a coverage perfect for home-schoolers or as supplemental assignment for music studies.
