Meeting music curriculum needs with fun and creativity

A brilliant classroom resource. Used it in both KS1 & KS2. Very varied and enjoyable songs, raps and rhythmic activities. Children love them and learn musical skills quickly. (Posted on 27/04/2010)
Red Hot Dots Review by Christine laughlin

I am a class peripatetic music teacher working in 14 different schools and was recommended this book. I think it is an excellent resource and I have used it extensively in all my schools. The pupils have responded very enthusiastically to all the songs. I have been able to have beginner recorders and guitars playing along to some of the songs. I would thoroughly recommend this for any primary class teacher. Is there going to be a book 2? (Posted on 27/04/2010)

Made up of Red Hot Recorder Duets, Red Hot Flute Duets, Red Hot Recorder Songs and Red Hot Dots, the Red Hot Series has something for everyone!

Red Hot Recorder Duets and Red Hot Flute Duets are an excellent introduction to ensemble playing. The jazzy piano accompaniments give a fun, popular feel, and a free CD is included to help learn the pieces and to play along with.

Red Hot Recorder Songs works in step with Red Hot Recorder Tutor to present imaginative and alternative ways to teach the recorder. The book contains new songs written especially to reinforce note learning, all with a popular style and 'feel good' accompaniment. Also included are rhythm exercises to strengthen rhythmic literacy, articulation, listening skills and intonation. There are also suggestions for extension activities.
