Grades 4+ * A follow-up to the best-selling "The Beethoven Code" (30/2108H), this book offers an inventive and engaging way to approach the study of instruments. Step 1: Study the article about an instrument-choose from flute, harp, violin, piano, bassoon, trumpet, timpani, bagpipes, guitar, and more. You'll learn about its history, famous compositions written for it, and the performers who play it, but to get to the really good stuff, you'll have to crack the code. Step 2: Read the first question, find its answer within the article, and start thinking; it's your first clue for solving the code. Different codes are used for each instrument unit and the codes vary in difficulty. Keys for the codes and answers to the questions are provided, and permission to reproduce the student pages is granted.
