Editorial Reviews

Criticas
This bilingual book/CD pairs the acclaimed SmartStart guitar method with easy guitar arrangements for 26 songs from Spanish-speaking countries around the world. Baron Turner, Marshall, Phillips, and Rangel, four educators with experience in bilingual elementary education, music, and Spanish-language education, begin by introducing the nine-lesson method. After learning basic skills, like sitting and holding the guitar, and then moving to the more advanced tasks, like tuning and changing finger positions, students will be able to play such favorites as "Guantanamera," "La cucaracha" ("The Little Cockroach"), "La bamba," and "Cielito lindo" ("Beautiful Sky"). The songs are divided into three categories: Cycles (songs about daily life cycles such as seasons or plant growth), Circles (songs for children that can be sung with a movement activity), and Celebrations (songs that celebrate Latin American festivities). The English translations of the songs honor the original content of the Spanish-language lyrics without sacrificing musical flow when sung in English. The book provides reproducible lyric sheets as well as lesson plans that show teachers how they can use the songs to teach valuable lessons to their students. An excellent resource for elementary school teachers and parents of bilingual children.
