Following the huge success of their instrumental method Look, Listen & Learn, Michiel Oldenkamp and Jaap Kastelein have focussed their attention on school bands and devised a completely new method that can be used in both instrumental lessons and class bands or wind ensembles.
Learning Music Together is the new method for young wind players and percussionists, aged eight and above.
Learning Music Together has been developed in close collaboration with professionals from the class band world, music schools, and academies in the Netherlands and Germany.
Learning Music Together combines percussion lessons with a course for class band. The book for tuned and auxiliary percussion contains some additional material from the drums book, including parts for tuned percussion and auxiliary percussion for all the class band pieces.
The method consists of two volumes. Volume One introduces the first instrumental notes in unison and then develops part-playing with duets. Volume Two builds on the skills taught in the first volume and introduces pieces in three parts. There is no website for this particular book. All additional material can be found on the website for the drums. Learning Music Together is logically structured and illustrated in a child-friendly way - a perfect combination for young musicians!
