Listening to Music is a series which 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 second title in the Listening to Music series brings together music from Indonesia, the Caribbean, India, the Pacific, 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 3 to 6 and and an enjoyable source of alternative activities for their primary music scheme of work.

Reviews
  • “We loved this listening resource as it wasn’t just a bank of audio files, but a really interactive resource with lots of ideas for how to listen! It features a great range of different musical styles and traditions, and provides easy-to-understand guidance for the non-specialist teacher.”
