Concepts covered: This workbook, adapted to all learning styles, shows how a rotated keyboard can become the lines and spaces of the grand staff, thus solving the dilemma of teaching note reading from the perspective of traditional hand positions. Students learn from the very beginning that the grand staff is really just one big staff and the music alphabet is continuously repeated, line-space-line-space. Middle C is the natural division between the treble and bass staves. Emphasis is also placed upon the concepts of HIGH and LOW as the words relate to both location and sound. The challenge of teaching students to write notes ON A LINE is addressed through many examples that explain the differences between what is taught in school and what is learned in music.
