It was so refreshing back in 2009 on the release of ‘Musical Concepts’. Over the last 8 years or so I have noticed an increase in quality of Aural responses across the board and I strongly believe Helene’s book has played a major role in this. On it’s release, Music teachers and students finally had a departure point and scaffold to guide and support the unpacking of the 6 Concepts of music. The mind maps are an amazing tool for visual learners and in our school, it is great for our students with non-English speaking backgrounds. The analysis and terminology explanations are great for those that want more definition and detail. We have nicknamed it the ‘Bible of Concepts’. Greg Thwaites Head Teacher Performing Arts FAIRVALE HIGH SCHOOL
The Music text by Helene Galettis is the most in depth and in detail textbook available for preparation for the NSW Music 1 Aural examination. The students found that the musical example sound bites and concepts mind maps to be particularly useful. Stella Levinsky - Music Teacher Chatswood High School
This is a fantastic resource for students and staff. Each musical concept is explained in detail with clear examples of all features presented. Listening examples are provided, as well as past HSC questions and tips for sitting exams. And don’t think that this book is only for Music 1 students, it will quickly become an indispensable part of your departments programs. David Gresham Director of Music St Catherine’s School, Waverley
Helene Galettis text is our main HSC text for Music 1. The teachers and students have found it well-organised and thorough. The book has great audio samples in soundbites highlighting musical terms, as well as chapter listening activities Dev Gopalasamy Head of Performing Arts Saint Ignatius' College, Riverview
The workshop was highly informative and inspirational for the students. It provided the students with a variety of approaches for structuring a written response in the aural exam. Additionally it provided an extra opportunity for students to practice their aural skills. Stella Levinsky - Music Teacher Chatswood High School
The Aural workshop our teacher organised was very helpful. I left feeling much more confident about the concepts of Music. The workshop was highly informative and engaging, with many different activities to help us understand each part of the concept. We even had a chance to ask about specific parts that we found difficult. Eg. Polyphonic, I now understand! Chatswood High School Year 12 Music 1 Student
