When a student learns to understand the music symbols representing rhythm, pitch, and dynamic expression, a whole new world is opened to him. Music literacy skills learned at an early age carry the student from vocal to instrumental music and on to choral, concert band, orchestral music and many other types of ensembles. As skills are developed, the student matures into a confident participant and leader of music in the school, church, and community.
These BASICS lessons provide a quick overview of foundational concepts and skills. They are designed to be used at the beginning of each school year to help new or transfer students catch up somewhat to the other students. The lessons will help all students by reviewing the most basic of concepts and skills.
