Each activity is clearly presented with simple instructions, resources needed, a learning focus, and numerous suggestions for link material and development. Key terms are explained in an introduction and there is plenty of advice for those new to organising music-making. The practical and varied ideas ensure that many aspects of each element are covered... these simple and thoughtful ideas will support teachers in helping children to listen attentively and enjoy making music. This alone should justify its inclusion in a school's music resources. Music Education Vol.15 No.2 1998
