Cluttered and confusing
on 10 December 2014
I bought this to have a look at for a pupil who was struggling with grade 1 theory. The lay out of this makes it very difficult to use. There is far too much information on each page. The illustrations are fussy, dense and distracting. The games and puzzles are far more complex than they need to be to get the information across. On the crucial area of rhythm there is hardly any more detail than in the grade 1 theory book.
I'm going back to inventing my own games, and then straight in to the ABRSM grade 1 book, which is much more accessible than this (except for piano pupils- very good Ng books work well in conjunction with the keyboard.)
