          Like the clear diagrams of the violin. Like the idea of theory for young violinists - without Bass Clef work. Though that is needed later if the child is to progress musically.
          Far too much writing for young children to do.
          American terms for note lengths with no 'English' version.
          No colour! There are some really fun theory books around with colourful pages, stickers and games which are most appealing!

          When I first received this book, I was actually somewhat disappointed. No colour, no stickers, no pitch names for the notes, no leger lines to get down to that G that we learn from lesson 1! BUT: I think that the exercises in this book are excellent for the very young beginner who needs a lot of practice to write unambiguous notes and to quickly differentiate specific lines and spaces. I can imagine that working through this book will mean that the child will be able to make quicker progress through more advanced concepts as he/she will be able to focus on the ideas rather than on how to write the notes and rests correctly. We are using this in conjunction with "Music theory for Young Children".
