Why choose Music Fun?
The books are written so that pupils discover the rules of theory for themselves, engaging pupils from the start. This helps them to internalise and remember the theory rather than just learning rules.
Once a rule has been established, there are fun practice pages, which consolidate knowledge and gradually lead to further discoveries.
Quiz pages are used to revise knowledge. These pages are popular because they give pupils a score.
(And as we all know children thrive on competition.)
There are a few pages on each topic (alternating a section on pitch with one on rhythm) so that the learning is balanced and varied. Thus, the learning curve is gradual but continuous and pupils often ask to do more.

Author of Music Fun brings her class to tears!
The emotive power of music was evident at school when Gillian asked her Year 4 (8/9 years of age) children to listen to ‘On hearing the first cuckoo in Spring’ by Delius. After playing a short excerpt she stopped the music to determine the children’s reaction to the piece. At this point she noticed one of the boys in tears. Asking him why he was crying he replied that the music reminded him of his grandpa who had died. Many others said it made them feel sad. She continued with the music and as it progressed so more and more of the children burst into tears. Many said it brought back sad memories of grandparents dying, mum and dad splitting up and family pets dying. One of the suggestions for a title was ‘Pools of Tears’. At the end of the lesson over half had shed bucket loads of tears.
As many will appreciate music evokes strong emotions sometimes, hence the use of
music in films and TV productions -
