Learning objects Vocal Ease MORE (Module 1)

TLF ID M025353

Vocal Ease MORE (Module 1) is an updated sequel to the original Vocal Ease resource which was created around 20 years ago to support classroom music education. This new version focuses on building knowledge and skills in vocal music in the K-6 classroom. It features five original pieces, additional audio tracks and curriculum based teaching and learning activities. Each of the five pieces also include videos of quality practice, interviews and interactive scores. There is also a module which explores how students can create their own music video. This resource is also downloadable as a SCORM file: the downloaded version will only work if you upload it to a webserver, such as Moodle or Canvas.
