Notes for guidance

Recommended software
To hear the MIDI files, a plug-in is required to hear them.  The standard Windows media player is barely adequate.  A preferred MIDI player is the crescendo plug-in.

ICT opportunities
Pupils could devise tests in pairs at a computer.  Using a scorewriter, a pupil inputs 4 notes starting at C.  The other pupil listens to the notes and attempts to name them.

Resources
Pitched percussion instruments such as keyboards and glockenspiels.
