  • Clear, concise instructions
  • Printable instructional materials in colour AND blackline
  • A powerpoint presentation file for easy delivery of lessons
  • Assessment suggestions

All you need to deliver these lessons are:

  • the ability to print/copy sheets for students OR a smartboard/projector
  • THAT’S IT!
  • Instruments such as recorder or a piano will be helpful with this pack of lessons, but not absolutely necessary.
