This pack combines active listening with practical music making. It gives busy teachers a fingertip resource of recordings of music and related classroom activities, which will help children understand their own and other people's music. The approach is involving, practical and accessible, requiring no music-reading ability.
There are twelve complete recordings of music from different times and places, chosen to demonstrate the elements: duration, dynamics, tempo, timbre, texture, pitch and structure. Photocopiable material is included along with supplementary recordings supporting the activities.
