Key Features of Maestro

Learning Outcomes have been carefully selected and grouped together in chapters. Chapters have then been grouped into units of learning. This reflects the approach recommended by the specification.

Content is presented in a well-paced and structured sequence. Clear, simple language is used throughout.

Prior learning, learning intentions and Prelude activities at the start of each chapter get students thinking about the chapter topic in an active way.

Keywords are clearly marked and defined in the text, which helps to develop students’ Music literacy. Keywords are also listed at the end of each chapter to help with revision.

Listen, Perform, Compose and Explore activities appear in each chapter so that students can put their learning into action. These individual, pair- or group-work learning experiences are based on the three elements of Creating and Exploring, Participating and Music-Making, and Appraising and Responding.

Tracks and Links are clearly marked to let students know when they need to listen to one of the many pieces of music on the app or online. These musical examples appear throughout the textbook from Chapter 1.

Students are introduced to body percussion, the voice, the recorder and the ukulele as performance tools.

Face the Music questions, Finale activities, Self-assessment checklists and Learning Reflection questions at the end of each chapter allow students to monitor their progress and manage their own learning.
Composition Portfolio

The Composition Portfolio is a write-in book where students can create and store their original musical compositions. This will help them to prepare for Classroom-Based Assessment 1 in a carefully scaffolded way.
