Teaching Music Reading Skills (TMRS) is a method of teaching—

  1. Based on the concept of learning language;
  2. That has evolved as a result of over 30 years of use in the elementary music classroom;
  3. That works with a wide spectrum of learners—students with autism, exceptional ed students, life skills students, gifted students;
  4. That has been successful in inner city and suburban schools;
  5. Encourages differentiated learning.

By consistently using this method of repetition and reinforcement, children will gain a confidence in their music reading skills and will be better prepared to begin learning how to play the recorder in 3rd grade.
