Making Music is an invaluable practical resource for all instrumental and singing teachers. It will ensure that you make the most of every minute of lesson time and gives you the necessary tools to develop a student's musicianship to the full.

Subjects include warming up, pulse and rhythm, basic musical elements such as harmonic progression, scales, melody, improvising, and composing.

Suitable for both group and individual lessons, and for students at all stages, Making Music provides a refreshingly practical approach to developing the whole musician.
