The Take Off! series

Carefully graded pieces to help pupils with reading and aural skills. Includes CD with backing tracks and chord symbols for a live keyboard or guitar accomp.

Teacher's Notes: These carefully graded pieces have been designed to help your pupils with their reading skills from elementary to grade 3 - 4. The scale melodies will help to develop a feeling for keys and tonality. The pieces have no performance markings and you and your pupils are encouraged to add these as part of the learning experience. The chord symbols throughout are in concert pitch and offer the opportunity to add a live keyboard or guitar accompaniment.

These pieces are designed to be both enjoyable performance material and a helpful teaching resource, and the scale melodies will make preparation for examinations a more rewarding and musical experience.

Student's Notes: Every piece has a full performance track and an accompaniment track on the companion CD. Listen to the performance tracks and try to copy what you hear - for example, what do you notice about the quavers (eighth notes) in Pogo Stick and Swingin' - are they the same? Use your ears.

Play along with the accompaniment tracks with as much style as you can, and most importantly, Have Fun!

Alison Uren for Music Teacher Magazine

Chris Holmes is an experienced, practising teacher and this shows in this new publication...it contains material that has obviously been well tested on young players and will prove to be popular. There are some good scale melodies in the back with sequences to help to develop a feeling for keys and tonality. A much more fun way to prepare scales than just trying to memorise them...Good fun and a good teaching resource.
