I want to suggest a theory book for a 6 year old to use over the Summer, preferably with stickers or colouring. She's part way through PA 1 so I don't think the very early ones would be suitable. Mum is very supportive and plays herself so they can work through it on their own. I have used Lina Ng before but not sure of the levels.

Thanks, Norway. Does it have notes outside middle C position?

I'm meeting up with Ying Ying Ng on Saturday so let me know of anything you'd like me to ask her!

Yes, I use Ying Ying Ng ( apparently no relation) Music Theory for Young Children - sticker central laugh.png.. If your student is on PA 1, you could start with Book 2 for revision/consolidation ( Book 1 would probably be too easy) and then move on to Book 3 ( tones, semitones, major scales). I don't use Book 4, but go on to a 'proper grown-up book' once they've completed Book 3 (Trinity Grade 1 Workbook). No stickers or illustrations, but very well organised.

It was Ying Ying I was talking about - Lina Ng (no relation) also produces theory/sticker books.

 

Ying showed me a lovely new book she's just brought out about performance directions - yay, more stickers!
