Children love making music – and Usborne keyboard and drumming books are a great way to start. Later on, they can learn about different instruments and composers or start playing an instrument of their own. Scroll down to see all Usborne music books.
These brilliant books let children play simple tunes on the keyboard, drums or xylophone. The keyboard books have a touch-sensitive keyboard attached, while My First Drumming Book has buttons to play five different types of drums and cymbals.
Each book also has an interactive online demo program – click on the 'Quicklinks' tab on the book pages to try them!
My First Drumming Book author Sam Taplin reveals how he turned a book into an interactive drum kit – and why it needed a last minute overhaul before production!
Usborne music books are great fun to play – and they're also a good way to introduce your child to music and playing an instrument. With the keyboard books, children will learn to recognise the notes and even make up their own tunes, while the drumming book will give them a sense of rhythm and beat.
