The Listening to Music series actively engages children in listening to music so that they can perform it and compose it themselves. Each pack comprises a visually exciting book, a CD of all the recordings, and a CD-ROM of interactive whiteboard activities and printouts.

The first title in the Listening to Music series brings together music from China, West Africa, India, South America and Europe - an eclectic mix of traditional, historical and contemporary music.

Through the activities, children recognise and use the building blocks of music: long and short sounds, high and low, loud and quiet, fast and slow. They perform their own versions of some of the recordings and they compose others - always listening perceptively to their own and others music.

Teachers will find this title a useful accompaniment to Music Express Years 1 and 2 and and an enjoyable source of alternative activities for their primary music scheme of work.
