The selection of songs and rhymes used in this method are from the rich repertoire of traditional folksongs and rhymes. The order of rhythm and tonal patterns used were determined through an investigation of those rhythm and tonal elements which occur regularly in traditional children's folksongs and rhymes, from the simplest to the most complex. The simplest set of tones that occur in traditional folksongs was found to be "do, re and mi." The rhythm content of this method begins with the easiest rhythm patterns consisting of the quarter note and two eighth notes in 2/4 meter and the dotted-quarter note, three eighth notes, and quarter note followed by the eighth note in 6/8 meter.

  • Well organized curriculum
    Having taken an overview workshop only, the plethora of materials provided allow for a comprehensive approach to teaching music literacy. I am looking forward to digging in and following the systematic approach of introducing a rhythmic and melodic foundation.
