Description: 'The PROUD little note' is an excellent storybook/gift for children who learn music. This story, written by Helen Yeo, and illustrated by Jacqueline Ng, comes with the intention of bringing awareness to them that music is much much more than just individual notes, or simply by just stringing together CDEFG. Music brings pictures to life with various tones and shadings. Music can be made to sound like a bird chirping, or a frog croaking. And in music, like real life, being able to set aside individual pride and to work together with others as a team brings satisfying results.

The gist of the story is as such: Proud G was a proud little G note, who thought he was a cut above other music notes. He left his home on the music sheet to seek affirmation that he was indeed the best-sounding note among other notes on the stave. Through his adventures, he began to learn the value of team work and cooperation. His final realization came after a particularly moving orchestral performance in which he finally understood the versatility of music, and prompted him to return to his customary role, as the G note on a music sheet. He learned to put pride aside and worked together with the others.

“Music is not just a cluster of notes put together. Music is about emotions. Happiness, sadness. Music is about life. Music tells life's story.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“We do not make music simply by playing the notes. That's making noise. We make music by playing with awareness, by focusing and by listening.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“Look around you. Music can be found everywhere. In chaotic traffic jam, the blasting of horns. In a cafe, the low humming of voices, the coffee machine. In the garden, the chirping of birds. Music is all around you.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“A movie without soundtrack will be a very boring movie. When you play music, let the music create a picture in your mind, and give life to the picture with your music, like a movie soundtrack.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“Record your practice sessions often. This will help you to identify your weaknesses from the audience's perspective, hence making it easier to rectify your playing.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

“Do not straightaway Google song sheets for your favourite songs. Try to DIY. Reach out with your musical sense and play out the melody. Use chord progression to add accompaniment to the melody. Decorate the tune with catchy ornaments. The song will be more meaningful with your own personal touch.” — Helen Yeo, Musical Moments

Music is connected in all elements. We cannot isolate a piece to teach without involving any aural awareness, and neither can we teach theory without ‘HEARING’ the theory, (e.g. we have to ‘HEAR’ the pitch of a sharpened note when we teach the accidental - sharp ‘#’). This cohesive organisation of thoughts and actions will make your lessons invaluable and interesting to your students. With it intertwined together, the lessons become ‘alive’ and musically enriching. — The ART of Teaching by Alice Chua
