Product Details


Learning to read music is much like learning a language. There are three basic elements: listening, reading, and writing. This well-organized book provides step-by-step sequential lessons for developing these skills. Rhythm, note, and interval concepts are taught in the following way: first, hear and echo a short musical example; second, read and perform a notated exercise; and third, notate musical phrases as demonstrated on the CD. Reproducible worksheet-style pages are included in the book. Ten-minute activities are provided for teaching or assessment, and are recommended for 4th through 9th grade ensembles or music classes.
