**There is a growing awareness that some traditional folk songs, containing racist or derogatory terms or themes, may cause offence. Consequently, Take Note Music is currently auditing our song material with the intention to print new additions where necessary. 3rd Editions for 2022 have been released for Student Books 4 & 5. 'Dinah' is replaced by 'Kookaburra Laughing' - see 3E Teacher Book 4 or 5 for notation or here. The Take Note Music text books provide a set of thorough sequential and practical lesson guides for music teachers. The program offers teachers a succinct, step-by-step guide for developing students' musical understanding and meta-cognition skills with long and short term lesson planning for teachers.
The program promotes:
Music Literacy - music reading and writing skills
Understanding through clearly set out written activities
Catering for individual differences through extension activities included in the Teacher Books
Our aim is to nurture the practice of true music literacy; where students activate their seeing ear and their hearing eye - their musicianship is developed so that they can analyse what they are hearing and imagine it in writing. Students can sight sing from music notation without the aid of an instrument.This program fosters in students critical thinking and listening, creativity, collaboration and communication in the classroom through the language of music.
Students love the clearly set out, sequential tasks
A4 format with 26 - 28 pages
Rhythm, Sol-fa and Stave activities
Fun to colour in song pictures which give the teacher the opportunity to work with individual students to do assessment
This 5-book series caters for individuality through a number of musical extension activities included in the accompanying teacher books
It is proposed that each written activity is incorporated as a small segment of an active music making lesson
