Upbeat Class Level 1 - Teacher Book
By Jeffrey Leask.
Upbeat Class is a developmental music program covering the musical growth of students for the first seven years at school. Designed for every classroom teacher, the program provides clear, simple and engaging activities to meet all needs in a music curriculum. Students learn by listening critically, by performing with skills and knowledge and, importantly, creating and performing their own music. Using examples and 'real music' from a wide range of historical and geographical styles, refined vocal models and recordings of the highest quality, music becomes a necessary and enjoyable part of the total curriculum.
Upbeat Class Includes:
- - more mini-musicals based on traditional tales
- - more performance and concert items
- - electronic whiteboard instrument charts
- - traditional and creative dances
- - music reading AND writing!
Every activity, every idea is presented as a whole class focus in short, concise instructions and leads to individual and group creativity. Making, Creating and Performing is the outcome of each and every lesson. Moving left to right through the Teacher Book gives both class teachers and arts specialists a meaningful, developmental program. The Teacher’s Book gives families of activities grouped in units of work that highlight each musical concept (Beat, Rhythm, Pitch, Tempo, etc.) Simple, short, teaching ideas with a minimum of reading supported by high-quality instrumental music and excellent vocal models on the 4CD pack make lessons engaging and meaningful. (More than 200 activities per Teacher Book) Evaluation sections at the end of each unit clarify individual and class progress.
