Nothing replaces live music, but when quiet is necessary, the worksheets produced by Keynotes Education can make a very serviceable alternative.
The CD-rom will generate eight sets of sheets suitable for key stage 3. A set on great composers introduces names from Bach to Elgar, with a brief but udicious mixture of biographical and compositional facts.
Reproduction quality is high, with portraits adding a heightened sense of actuality. Further series are promised. Each CD-rom password costs about pound;14.99, or buy the complete set of eight for pound;80.00.
