Advantages of the Credo series


COURSE CONTROL
A Course Control provides information, a table of contents, a course map, personal progress report, method of work and a flow diagram.

MODULES
Concepts are presented in attractive, logical modules. Simple explanations of the learning content of every aspect are in intelligible language for the child. Facts with examples are given as well as associating methods, a variety of excercises, etc.

SUMMARY
A Summary of each module facilitates revision.

WORK INDEPENDENTLY
You work independently by choosing the correct module and proceeding without any explanation by a teacher.

OWN WORKING PACE
You determine your own working pace and have boundless freedom to complete as many modules as you wish, in your own time. In case of absence from class, learners can catch up on their own.

REVISION
You may work back to explanations and examples previously learned, should you have forgotten any work.

MODULAR TESTS
in which a learner’s specific subject knowledge is tested, accompanies every book. Tests are in a separate sealed envelope.

REVISION TESTS
are done to ensure that learners do constant revision of previous work.

MEMORANDA
An answer book for each grade facilitates marking of exercises and tests.

HINTS
for writing exams are included.

TEACHERS
This programme approach enables teachers to manage learners at different levels of development in music theory simultaneously, in one classroom!

The excellence of this method lies in the self-activity and tightly controlled progress of students, as well as in the constant reinforcement of concepts leading to mastery of the subject.
