There are no audio files for these resources. All the music is standard orchestral repertoire, and any version you can access will be fine.

These resources are not about individual pieces. They are concept-based, in line with our belief is that the aim of music K-6 is to help students develop their understanding of how music works, through active engagement with a wide range of music.

Musical concepts which are clearly exemplified in several pieces are identified, and teaching activities written to develop student understanding through playing, singing, moving, creating, listening and commenting.
