Book 1 consists of Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Strauss 1.
The OBJECTIVE of this book: For children to have some basic knowledge of composers and their compositions at an earlier age. Also some basic knowledge of INSTRUMENTS of the ORCHESTRA and other components i.e. history, geography (maps), literacy etc.
Composer WHO? comes with the following:
- A SIMPLE STORY TELLING of a composer from different eras;
- PIANO ARRANGEMENT easy enough for a 1st and 2nd grader to learn the song in 2-3 weeks and quick enough for a 3rd grader to sight read;
- QUESTION & ANSWER to evaluate the child on what they have accomplished during the lesson. Q & A pages set are similar to the ABRSM graded theory exam syllabus (Grades 1-5). Objective: For child to familiarise approaching each question with understanding in preparation for their graded theory exam. (Certain words will be highlighted in bold to prompt the child e.g. letter names, time name, tonic triads etc. so that there is clarity in mind knowing how to answer each specific question).
- FUN GAMES, QUIZZES, TRIVIA and GENERAL KNOWLEDGE information about instruments and composer-related activities.
A note from me: To the teachers, have FUN introducing each lesson to your students. Keep pursuing your passion at all times. To the parents, BE ENGAGED with your child’s music education.
