The ability to actively listen is a crucial skill in school children. From following directions from the teacher to communicating with their peers, those children who can make sense of their world through the auditory abilities have a greater opportunity to interact with and learn from those around them. Good auditory skills help students overcome the distractions inherent in the background noise and activities in a classroom, and those skills can help them stay focused.
The Upado Unlimited website provides
customers with audio recordings of songs
from the Music Pattern Song Books so that each
xylophone, recorder, hand bells or piano
musician can practice active listening by hearing the recording and then playing the matching tunes
on their instruments. Free audio tracks
of the song patterns can be found at: www.upadounlimited.com/music-book-audio
some of the duets to practice active listening. By putting the device between them, they can watch and listen to the video to help them learn their separate parts. You tube videos can be found at: www.upadounlimited.com/videos
Students can listen to any of the songs on the website and play along with the recordings.
Wishing you joy on your musical journey!
