PMS010/ Morning Has Broken/ Score

Morning Has Broken
- opens a pop-up window. Then, click twice on the play button.
Everyone's favourite!

This score represents just one way of performing the piece, which is suitable for a 'mix'n'match' treatment. It works well as a duet between parts M1 & M2; M1 and M3; M1 and the descant; M1 and A1, as well as in various trio combinations.

 Sound 123 (124) on a General Midi keyboard is 'Bird'. On a good instrument, this sound can be triggered freely, allowing a young or disabled child to make an effective contribution to the performance. (Although, in this way, almost anyone can produce pleasing sounds, there is scope for the more sympathetic musician to shape this contribution, enhancing its effect.)

PTS002A/ Rhythmic Reading Through Improvisation/Part 1

A fun way to help pupils internalise rhythmic patterns and develop rhythmic sight-reading.

Once pupils have developed a secure sense of pulse, they can begin to relate rhythmic groups of sounds to this underlying pulse. As we know, fluent sight-reading pre-supposes they can recognise patterns as a whole, not stopping to work out the duration of every note: bars of rhythmically grouped notes should be as familiar as the key words of their language. When we are learning to read our first words, we encounter each one, repeatedly, in many different contexts. However, the repertoire of the beginner instrumentalist seldom contains sufficient repetition of each grouping for pupils to attain easy familiarity with patterns beyond those introduced in the first few pages of a tutor book.

One way to address this problem is by the regular use of flash cards - but that can be so boring! How can we motivate them to focus their attention on a card? This resource is based on the premise that most pupils find their own ideas far more interesting than those of teachers and composers of elementary pieces! The set of 'flash cards', covers many of the rhythmic patterns the pupil will encounter in the first two or three years of instrumental tuition. 'Cards' are grouped into three levels, roughly corresponding with the requirements of UK examining boards at Grades 1,2 & 3.

Solfa for Grade Exam 'Singing from Score' -1

This resource is geared to the needs of the young instrumentalist preparing for the ABRSM Grade 4 Aural Test 4B. The pitch range for this test does not fit easily with the sequence of learning adopted by today's popular sight-singing methods for children, so a different approach is required to aid rapid learning of this skill. It is designed to enable the exam candidate to prepare independently, easing the pressure on lesson time.
