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.
The 'Listening to Music' series won the Primary Music Magazine 'Best Listening Resource' award in 2019.
