The next step towards intermediate music theory!
Note Knacks Dots and Beams – Ready to take the next step? These notation blocks are proportionally correct for advanced rhythms, including various beamed eighth and sixteenth combinations, dotted rhythms, and 3 additional time signature frames for 6/8, 9/8, & 12/8. 43 pieces.

Note Knacks are an interactive, hand-on learning tool that allows children to learn and absorb music notation concepts by working with these specially-designed manipulatives. The tiles provide kids with a physical representation of the five different rest and note values by length, color and notation. The note is on one side; the rest is on the other.

Kristin M. Pugliese is passionate about how knowledge is acquired and believes it impacts children’s attitude toward learning for life. She is dedicated to creating a world where everyone is musically literate.

She has been an educator for more than 15 years, first in early childhood education and then in the music classroom. She has worked almost exclusively in Title 1 Schools in Rhode Island, Georgia and Massachusetts, and helped create music standards for Cambridge Public Schools.
