Making music is at the heart of authentic and engaging music education. The Take Note Music Making series is a group performance resource that takes place within the context of the regular singing-based music classroom. It provides a guide to performance skill development with explicit learning intentions that are achieved through singing and sequential transference onto recorder and/or tuned percussion.
Students learn to perform a variety of styles of music from around the world on descant recorder and/or tuned percussion. They sing, play, read, write, listen, respond and create. It is expected that the songs are thoroughly known by the students in words and sol-fa prior to transferring them into note names and onto instruments. Students develop the skill of reading notation in the treble staff. Each task is succinct, accessible and clearly set out. There are extension challenges offered for the more able students.
The song repertoire can be consolidated both in the classroom and beyond with the use of the extensive recordings that accompany the student book.
Unique and engaging recordings (70 tracks) that include for each song:
Vocals with words, sol-fa and note names
Recorder with accompaniment
