Teacher Notes for Once Upon a Tune (Otter-Barry)

These notes are intended to enhance the usefulness and enjoyment of this book. Written primarily with teachers and helpers in mind, they also have much to offer to parents or anyone reading with or to children.

Most of the stories is this book are ideal for KS2 and older, however some stories are suitable for KS1 and these are clearly identified. You don’t have to use all the notes, you can pick and choose whatever feels right for you.

Beginning with an introduction to an orchestra, there then follows fabulous ART activities that you can apply to all the stories in the book, plus guidance on art materials. The notes continue with a LISTENING guide for each story, and exciting cross-curricular ACTIVITIES to explore.

Remember, music education isn’t just about PLAYING an instrument. It is also about learning to LISTEN to music and enjoy it. You don’t have to be a painter to visit a gallery. You don’t need to be a musician to go to a concert.

Open your mind, your heart, your ears… LISTEN, and let this music take your hand – as it whispers… ONCE UPON A TUNE.
