The second volume of this series for students ages 4–9 offers easy music reading, with large-size notes and grand staff notation, as well as hands one octave apart in "positions." Book 1 takes up where the Primer leaves off, introducing eighth notes, 3/4 time, the keys of C and G, and the concepts of left-hand melody and right-hand chords. Whimsical Family Circus
cartoons add a touch of humor.
