Apps, Websites and other useful info:
Below are some websites and apps that you may wish to take a look at. I will keep adding to these – If anyone has others to share, or comments about the things I post, please get in touch ….
www.musicroom.com A useful website with sheet music, instrument and gift supplies
www.hofnote.com A website which is VERY useful in the 2 or 3 months leading up to take a music exam, to practise Aural Test skills. Aural Tests are part of ABRSM exams, where children listen and answer questions about music the examiner plays. These questions provide up to 18 marks, and this website enables pupils to practise this aspect at home. There are free parts, and subscriber parts as well. Well worth a look ……….
