'An excellent resource ... thoroughly researched and tested ...
these guys have thought of everything ...'
'they make it so easy ... someone else has already done all the hard work for me ...
even when I am out of the school, a relief teacher can come in
and easily carry on or revise work already done.
The CDs save my voice so much and as I am not a trained music teacher
- they save me majorly.'
Gordonvale State School
a wonderful music resource for the primary music classroom.
For very busy non specialist teachers ...
it could very well be considered a "God Send" ...
material and activities that will engage their students ...
very user friendly ... resourced very well ...
The greatest strength of this series would definitely be the immaculately resourced and systematic organisation of lesson material,
especially the focus on the musical elements.
Why not try an activity from the books!
