Martin Yates: pBuzz – Learn to Play

This book is designed for non-brass instrument specialists, teaching in a Primary School setting. This is mainly aimed at EYFS and Key Stage 1, but can also be used in Key Stage 2.

It is designed to give children as young as Reception the chance to learn to play a brass instrument, even though the pBuzz is plastic the way you produce a sound is exactly the same as any brass instrument. Students will learn and perform the five notes on a pBuzz and play some simple tunes.

There are 6 Steps, these may achieved 1 per week or 1 over a number of weeks depending on the number of children, the time available and the level of the children

Accompanying this book is a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation for pBuzz containing the music and associated audio tracks.
