Music notes are sometimes called dots for fun, and fun is exactly what this book is all about. It’s a treasure chest of activities to encourage good music technique, offer fun musical experiences and expand musical horizons. There’s a FREE CD. Red Hot Dots covers many aspects of the National Curriculum music syllabus for Key Stages 1 and 2. There’s an opportunity to develop: performing skills, including singing in unison and in rounds, and playing percussion; composing skills - making up rhythms and improvisations; appraising skills - a chance to talk about musical styles and how music makes you feel; listening skills, like learning and remembering melody and words; use of tempo, dynamics and duration.
