Descriptions of Each Pack in this Set

Wicked Warmups  (MuP006)
Our Wicked Warmups will get your lessons going with a bang. The activities use thigh slapping, feet tapping and percussion instruments to focus on the rhythms in a variety of pieces of music. Some require listeners to follow the beat (the jig in 6-8 is a particularly fun challenge). Others encourage them to create rhythmic patterns to fill the gaps in the music.

18 worksheets + 40 flashcards + 9 music tracks.

The editable version includes MS Word & midi files.

Reading Flashcards  (MuP011)
These materials have been designed to develop the music reading of beginner instrumentalists. A 40-bar backing track and flashcards are provided in the keys of D major (for violins), G major (for recorders) and C major (for woodwind, brass, singers or keyboard). The music uses a four-bar pattern, the first three bars being played by the ‘band’. The idea is to show the card on the third bar so that your students can play the notes in the fourth bar, although there are plenty of other ways to utilize the resources. The music notation increases in complexity, gradually introducing crotchets, minims, quavers, rests, ties and dotted notes.

150 flashcards + music track played in C, D and G. The premium version also includes the original, editable MS Word files along with the Sibelius file for each separate flashcard.
