Spirito is the level B resource for students aged around 8 to 11, and is the slightly more advanced progression from the Animato workbook. The level of theory here involves all major and minor five-finger patterns, chords, elementary rhythms and beginning musical terms. The content is similar to the Energico workbook, but Spirito is more targeted towards an older beginner, with specific activities and puzzles that will engage a student approaching teenage years. This Teacher Guide contains all you will need to teach these concepts alongside the student workbook, such as an answer key, notated listening examples and reproducible theory and ear-training testing resources. The creative and imaginative student workbook makes learning more entertaining, while this well-organised and comprehensive Teacher Guide makes teaching what is ordinarily a difficult subject, simple and easy.
