Music: Rudiments of Music
(click the link and scroll all the way to the bottom)


Anyone needing a basic music foundation without all the frills and distractions so that you can more confidently explore the world of music with your children?

This resource is IT!

Rudiments of Music covers just that - the rudiments, so you "get" it. Truly get it.

The suggested songs are Christian in nature; the musical foundation is pure music.

A student guide and a teacher's guide are all you need - for a total of $8 plus shipping.

However, I have linked you to the page that also has their pitch pipe and staff liner - handy tools in the exploration of music, including in the Montessori music albums. This page also includes their paper-based music course, which is one workbook for a grade level, 1st through 8th.
