Hear It, Read It, Write It!30 Sequential Music Dictation Lessons
By Dave and Jean PerryBook and CD+Ages 9-14
There are three basic elements to learn in the language of music: listening, reading, and writing. This well-organized book provides sequential step-by-step lessons for those developing these skills. The concepts of rhythm, note, and interval are presented in the following way: first, hear and echo a short musical example; second, read and perform a notated exercise; and third, notate musical phrases as demonstrated on the CD. There are worksheet-style student pages included on the enhanced CD as reproducible PDFs. These ten-minute activities used for teaching or assessment are recommended for 4th through 9th grade music classes or ensembles.
