Take Note Music Listening and Responding Program
The most recent addition to our classroom music resource programs is the Take Note Music Listening and Responding program. Born from the realisation that students should learn from and be exposed to the work of the masters, this new and innovative collection of digital resources equips students to recall, understand, interpret, analyse, evaluate and create in response to listening to Art Music.
Focusing on the compositional elements of rhythm, melody, form, timbre, dynamics, tempo, texture, articulation and harmony, students are immersed in Art Music and explicitly taught the tools that composers use to create interest when composing a musical work. These Take Note Music Listening and Responding classroom music resources include captivating original listening maps, embedded orchestral instrument audio files, music notation excerpts from master works, movement activities and more that will bring Art Music to life in your music classroom. They have been complied with the busy music teacher in mind, offering short, sharp lesson segments that you can access readily from the one resource without needing to endlessly trawl through YouTube or websites for material!
