Total Music Book 1
A student workbook and a resource for classroom music teachers, Total Music is intended to be used as a first year of study for older beginners and students in the middle years (Years 5 to 8). The material is fun, engaging and proven to work!
Total Music has a unique layout with content divided into five key sections:
Music for the head:
factual information about music (theory of music)
Music for the heart:
music appreciation (listening and reflection)
Music for the hand:
musicianship (practical skills)
Music for the ear:
ear training (building the ability to imagine and decode musical sounds)
Creating and Performing:
tasks that integrate all these areas
These 5 sections emphasise the core principle of music education for the whole person!
