Animal Note/Standard Note Flash Card Set – Student Size

$5.99

This method of beginning music education is based on associative learning. Each note has a fun story that will help the student remember its location on the Grand Staff of music. As each note is introduced, the companion flash card should be used; repeat the word clue for that note showing first the Animal Note and then the standard note. Repeat the word clue for each note. This is so important as you want your student to be as comfortable seeing the standard note as they are the Animal note and the word clues are a firm association.

Theory Book

$11.99

This book was written at the request of a elementary school teacher I have worked with. I was explaining some basic elements of theory to her 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes. In my teaching I use associative learning as the bases of most of my explanations to our students. She appreciated the way her students understood the material as presented and asked me to write it in a book. It took over a year to complete the project. It is a reference book for your students and gives you, the teacher, additional ways to explain this important material to your students.

Guitar Note Reading Book

$11.99

Most young children are taught guitar by having them memorize the chord positions first and then studying various ways to use them. However, this does not teach the individual notes. When I first started teaching Guitar I found this very unsatisfactory for both my students and myself, so I worked on the “Guitar Note Reading Book” which teaches the location of the notes used on the guitar. This is first of the books in this series. More are planned for the future.

Beginning Timing

$11.99

The Animal Notes are easily read; there is no guessing what note is to be played next. When a student is beginning music with standard notation it is very easy to count a measure in 4/4 timing like this: 1--2------34, as the student works to identify the note in question. Since the “Timing Book” continues using the Animal Notes” the student is able to concentrate on even counting. There are enough songs to work on that the student has a chance to develop an ear for timing, a gift that will be of great value to them for all their lives.

Beginning Note Reading

$11.99

This book teaches the first nine notes of the keyboard. It gives word stories for each note’s location on the keyboard and the Grand Staff. These notes are the “mother notes of the Animal Note Family.” They are right in the middle of the Grand Staff, just as most mothers are the center of most family groups. Just seven letters of the alphabet are used to identify these notes in the United States, thus each animal name starts with the appropriate letter.
