This collection presents melodies specifically arranged for very young players. Pre-K through 1st grade players should always learn to sing the arrangements before attempting to play them on the handbells. Singing along with the practice CD tracks is a great way to become familiar with the arrangements. Some of the melodies in this collection have been scored with very simple melodic fragments that can be repeated as ostinato accompaniment by very young players on the handbells as others sing. There are arrangements for eight, thirteen, and twenty note handbells included in the book. Color coded cards can be used with this collection, as can melody cards.
