READYMADE MUSIC LITERACY  is a series of 40 lessons comprised of short instructional videos and worksheets designed for the general music, beginning band, beginning choir, and beginning orchestra classrooms.  Your students will develop a comprehensive understanding of:

  • Rhythm (Eastman¬†or¬†Traditional counting)
  • Staff Notation
  • Piano Keyboard
  • Musical Vocabulary
  • Basic Composition

Readymade Music Literacy eliminates hurdles in the instructional process by teaching your students literacy concepts slightly ahead of what they'll see in their standard method books.  This saves you time and makes learning new music easier and more fun for everyone!

"This is my fourth year using the Readymade Music Literacy content.  I appreciate the thoughtful sequence of the lessons and have noticed over the years an increased comprehension and retention of musical concepts with my kids.  The Readymade Music Literacy program makes learning new music easier giving us more time to actually focus on playing our instruments!"

"After trying other resources over the years, I was happy to find Readymade Music Literacy!  Readymade takes dry content and makes it interesting and enjoyable.  It's the perfect fit for middle school. Readymade keeps students engaged while still being methodical and thorough. There’s  no substitute for teaching your students music theory, and there’s no substitute for Readymade!"

"I loved seeing our students' confidence in music literacy grow exponentially throughout the year!  Readymade Music Literacy is paced and sequenced in a way that every student in the class can understand and be engaged on a deep level.  Our beginner classes made huge performance gains throughout the year and the DEPTH of musical skills was very apparent by our last performance!"

"Readymade Music Literacy lessons are engaging and masterfully designed!  We use Readymade's educational videos in our classroom to foster deep-seated learning on the subject of music literacy.  Our students LOVE participating in the activities and chants embedded in each video.  We are thrilled to continue using Readymade Music Literacy in our band classroom next school year!"
