Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory is designed for students of any age, whether listeners or performers, who want to have a better understanding of the language of music. In this all-in-one theory course, you will learn the essentials of music through concise lessons, practice your music reading and writing skills in the exercises, and test your knowledge with a review that completes each unit. The Teacher's Activity Kit for Volume 1 includes five reproducible activities for each of the six units in Volume 1 of the Student Books. The wide variety of activities includes Music Crossword Puzzles, Note Naming, Matching Games, Musical Math, Word Scrambles, and others for a total of 30 Activities in all. There is also one Test per Unit that covers all the theory concepts introduced in that Unit. Each reproducible page includes scoring boxes to help the instructor grade the page.
