Theory Made Easy For Little Children Level 1 by Lina Ng provides notes (semibreve, minim, crotchet), number of counts, dotted minim, the piano keyboard, time signatures, barlines, notes in the bass clef, revision notes, games, tests and some manuscript paper to practice music writing. There is also a lesson record and a certificate for signing by a teacher or parent when the book is completed. Specifically suited for children aged 4 to 7, this is the first of two books that present music theory using colourful illustrations and stickers for the exercises.

Theory Made Easy For Little Children Level 2 provides revision of material learnt in Level 1 as well as notes in the treble clef (A,B,C), rests, notes in the bass clef (F, E, D, C), position of stems, treble clef, bass clef, games, tests and some manuscript paper to practice music writing.

Hey Presto! is a comprehensive step-by-step series for all young beginners.With amusing characters and illustrations, clear and concise explanations this is a highly effective and enjoyable way for cellists to learn music theory.

The perfect way to be introduced to reading music.

The lessons are divided into pitch and rhythm. 

On the left page the child learns to sight read pitch (crotchets only in a 4/4 bar) and on the right page the child learns to read rhythm (open D string only).This way the child doen's have to multitask yet and can concentrate on one thing only.

There is a second volumen available which combines pitch and rhythm.

The writing is big and easy to deciffer.

Position Pieces for Cello is designed to give students a logical and fun way to learn their way around the fingerboard. Each hand position is introduced with exercises called ""Target Practice,"" ""Geography Quiz,"" and ""Names and Numbers."" Following these exercises are tuneful cello duets which have been specifically composed to require students to play in that hand position. In this way, students gain a thorough knowledge of how to find the hand positions and, once there, which notes are possible to play. Using these pieces (with names like ""I Was a Teenage Monster,"" ""The Irish Tenor,"" and ""I've Got the Blues, Baby""), position study on the cello has never been so much fun!

Position Pieces for Cello, Book 2 fills the pedagogical gap between the first book of Position Pieces and the two Thumb Position for Cello books in that it covers the fifth, sixth, and seventh positions. Position Pieces for Cello, Book 2 systematically introduces ways to find the correct location of each position and also to understand the various finger patterns required. As with Mr. Mooney's other books, this is accomplished in an enjoyable and creative manner through the use of cello duets. With titles like ""Surfing Cellos,"" ""Jumping Flea,"" and ""The Happy Certified Public Accountant,"" these pieces are really fun for students to play! This book will prove to be an indispensable tool for intermediate level cello students.
