Learning How to Read Music

Mr. Everybody's Musical Apartment is a silly story that we use to help us learn how to name the notes on the music staff (those five lines and four spaces). We use the initials of the characters to learn the names on the notes. We have begun to learn new notes in Book 3 and will begin testing over these new characters after break. The week before a test, students will get their own set of flashcards to take home and study as homework.
