Product Description

A lone trombone playing solo is joined by various instruments, one by one, to create a joyous music performance in the lead story ZIN! ZIN! ZIN! A VIOLIN. Other stories include Musical Max, when the neighbors start complaining about the noise Max stops practicing his trombone, bass, xylophone, flute, harmonica, cymbals, and synthesizer; The Star-Spangled Banner, Aretha Franklin’s soulful, heartfelt voice, our flag’s broad stripes and bright stars shine through in this moving rendition of our national anthem; Keeping House, Musical Lizzie Firkin would much rather sing and dance than do chores.; Apt. 3, the sounds of the harmonica lead to an understanding between a blind man and two boys.

Entertaining and Useful Feb. 22 2012

This video contains the following books:

Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin (by Lloyd Moss)
Musical Max (by Robert Kraus)
The Star-Spangled Banner (sung by Aretha Franklin, with a detailed historical explanation afterward)
Keeping House (by Margaret Mahy)
Patrick (by Quentin Blake)
Apt. 3 (by Ezra Jack Keats)

I think this video is great! I'm a music teacher, and I have read the book "Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin" to my first graders, but this version helps them understand what the instruments sound like (same with "Musical Max").

"The Star-Spangled Banner" is great too, because it illustrates what the words actually mean, and it has 3 of the 4 original verses, as well as a very detailed historical explanation that was perfect for my third graders when we had an America-themed concert.

"Keeping House" isn't really about music, but it's a cute little story. I like "Patrick", which is a nonverbal story. The title character plays classical music on his violin, which I am a big fan of. "Apt. 3" is a great story as well, I'm a big fan of Ezra Jack Keats.

I highly recommend this DVD. It's my first read-along DVD I've ever experienced, but I will be getting a lot more!

Fantastic group of stories Jan. 19 2014

The title story Zin! Zin! A Violin is reason enough to buy the video. It's told and orchestrated in a way that can't be duplicated by just reading the book. The other stories are also wonderful and kept my students highly entertained. Perfect for the music class.
