Product description

‘Signs and Symbols’ is one of five books which develop activities in a progressive way. They suggest ideas for liaison between teachers and other school staff and Visiting Musicians.
The materials develop simple ways of representing sound, from pictorial, through signs then simple invented symbolic representation, leading to children’s own graphic compositions. The terms ‘signs’ and ‘symbol’ are used to differentiate the children’s invented representations from ‘staff’ notation (e.g. crotchets, quavers, etc.).The materials offer suggestions for sound exploration activities, useful as preparatory and on-going experience. This series of books is written primarily with the ‘generalist’ music teacher in mind, although specialists/coordinators may appreciate ideas to add to their music-teaching repertoire. The materials also work well in a Professional Development context.
