This book is first in a series of theory/ear training books. Animato is Level A and is the beginning book for ages 8-11.
Concepts in Level A include the music alphabet, the grand staff, steps and skips on the keyboard and staff, rhythm up to eighth note pairs, five-finger patterns, I chords, and more! Choosing the right book ensures these concepts are presented through age-appropriate artwork, verbiage, and activities. Upon completion of Animato, students move into Level B1 Energico (designed for the younger student) or B2 Spirito for older students.
