Product Description

What is Xylo Karate?

It is a positive reward system that allows the children to learn at their own pace, rewarding them with coloured belts when a level is mastered.

How does the program work?

Students are given the books which they can work through at their own speed at home. In class they are tested when they have finished learning a song. If it sounds good, has the correct rhythms and notes, they receive the corresponding coloured belt for that piece.

What instrument is it for?

It is for a “Xylophone” that has at least one octave C to C, with no “black notes”.

Just for a Xylophone?

No... This program works for any diatonic 8 note (or more) Xylophone, Metallophone or Glockenspiel.

What is in the Kit?

1. Five different versions of the same material. Use what works for your situation.

Two are designed for students to use and fit on just four sheets double sided.

  • Normal note notation: for those who can read music
  • Note names in the note head: This allows the student to see the note name in the note head. Current thinking is that this works better than writing the note name under the note.

The other three versions are designed mainly for teachers.

  • Guitar/ukulele chords
  • Guitar/ukulele chords and a simple, mainly one-handed piano part.
  • In a separate PDF, a coloured note, full page, landscape version designed with interactive white boards and smart boards in mind.

2. Suggestions for teaching that I have found to work.

3. A template for making a practice instrument for the children to take home and practice.

4. Listening tracks so the student can hear how the pieces go.

5. Practice tracks for numbers 6 - 9 (Purple to Black) at a slower tempo.

6. Nine pieces or songs which are:

  1. Barry Also Said - Tony Matthews
  2. Up and Down the Ladder - Tony Matthews
  3. A Twinkle Variation - Traditional
  4. Hot Cross Buns - Traditional
  5. The Dream – Tony Matthews
  6. The Harmoneous Blacksmith** - George Frederic Handel
  7. The Lion – Camille Saint-Saens
  8. The Celtic Chimes – Tony Matthews
  9. What shall we do with** – Traditional

** These tunes have been slightly modified to fit the limited range of notes available. There is no reason why the proper notes could not be substituted for students who have more than one octave and a chromatic instrument available
