Middle Secondary Resources

Everything we do at DS Music is focused on teaching the language of music and ensuring a scaffolded and sequential foundation in music literacy for all students. There are a variety of resources designed to teach concepts, strengthen skills and consolidate understanding – everything you need for all learning and teaching contexts.

In addition to the workbooks and online courses, students and their teachers have access to teaching and practice videos, mp3 (audio) files, information sheets and worksheets, lesson plans and curriculum documents. The digital resources, online courses and interactive material is perfect for ready-made revision, remote learning or as a refresh and refine tool in particular concepts.
