    Lessons in this Ready-to-Use Music Literacy Series Teach Movable Do

    Key changes are presented in a simple, easy-to-understand manner making the concept commonplace. This prepares students to read music in any key. Information is presented “just-in-time” in order to focus student attention.

    Flexible Lessons are NOT Rhythm Syllable Specific

    The lessons in this easy-to-use Music Literacy Series do not dictate the use of one specific rhythm syllable system. You may use any rhythm reading system with these lessons, Kodály, French Time, Gordon, Takadimi, or Numerical.

    Note: In order for each lesson to stand alone, each lesson in this bundle includes the rhythm review, introduction to Do, Mi, So on the staff and hand signs. That is why the bundle is such a big discount.

    **These interactive xylophone/metallophone templates make it easy to demonstrate melodic patterns on the board so all can see.
