It is very important that a student who plays an instrument that uses the Treble Clef range of notes has a way to learn these notes in the same way they appear in the music they will be playing. This Flash Card set has the Animal Note on one side of the card and the corresponding standard note on the reverse of the card. A list of suggested word clues to help the student learn each notes location on the Treble Clef staff is included with each set of cards.
Note Reading for the Violin teaches the basic skills usually taught in many violin method book. However, the notes have the animal caraiactures used in the Animal Note method of beginning music education. The book includes the word clues necessary to teach the note location on the Treble Clef Staff and a discussion of timing since half, quarter as well as whole notes are used in these book in this book. Pictures that identify parts of the violin and bow, along with photos of the proper way to hold the violin, bow, and hand position are also included.
The “Moving On” books are designed to make the transition from the Animal Notes to Standard music notation smooth and fun. Each song is one page long; written first in the Animal Notes, then on the back of that page the song is repeated in standard music notation. “Moving On – Book One” has simpler songs so a child six years and older will be successful in making the transaction to level one in standard music. It will make the transition a pleasure for both you and your student.
What a joy it is for a beginning student to be able to play Christmas songs as the holiday approaches. The favorite of course is “Jingle Bells.” The timing is relatively simple in this piece so some 4 year olds and most five year olds can play it. That is so exciting for them. Adding Christmas music to the lessons in October will give your student time to learn several of the pieces before Christmas
This book is a sequel to the “Fun Song Book.” It continues to build on the knowledge the student has already gained. There is additional harmony in the Base Clef, and some simple elements of theory, some new and some already learned. It is always good to strengthen one’s ability while enjoying what you are playing. I sincerely recommend using this book. It is a great companion book to "Moving On in Music - Book One."
After all “all work and no play,” makes for boring learning. Let your students enjoy their experience by playing some familiar songs while working through the book on timing. What in interesting about songs we already know, we have not always learned the correct timing. This can be a challenge for the teacher, but a terrific learning experience for the student.
Much Viola music is written in this clef. It is very old fashion, but someone studying this instrument should be familiar with this arrangement of notes on this clef so it does not throw them when they are playing in a group that uses this clef for this instrument. It contains all the notes of the Grand Staff, but middle C (Mama Cat) is on the center line of the staff with high B (little Bear), D (little Dog and F (tree frog) are on the ledger lines above the staff. The ledger lines below the clef are low D (Daddy Dog, B (Daddy Bear) and G (Daddy Goat).
There are many instruments that have music written only in the Bass Clef, so it is important to learn to correctly read the notes in the Bass Clef including its common ledger line notes. This set of cards is designed for them. The note range is from the E (Grandpa Elephant) below the Base Clef to the G(Mama Giraffe) on the third ledger line above the Base Clef. Card size is 8 ½ by 11 inches.
Some instrument play mainly in the Treble Clef notes, and students need to learn only the notes appropriate for their instruments. This set of card is designed for them. The note range is from the F (Mommy Fish) that is on the third ledger line below middle C (Mama Cat) to the E (Baby Elephant) that is on the third ledger line above the Treble Staff. Card size is 8 ½ by 11 inches
This set is exactly like the student size set. They are 8 ½ inches by 11 inches, a nice size to be seen from the front of a classroom, but not too large to be handled easily by the teacher. The oval of each note is darker so it will show up better in a large classroom situation. The note range is from the F (Daddy Fish) hiding out at the bottom of the Base Clef to the G (Baby Giraffe) that is setting safely on top of the Treble Clef.
