Notes for guidance
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.
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.
Pitched percussion instruments such as keyboards and glockenspiels.
Further information for teachers/parents
- Composing an answering phrase may need some guidance. Some revision of the last lesson may be necessary.
