The program promotes:

  • 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
  • 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
