SPARKLERS           Pure Sparklers





































































SPARKLERS???

They are classical music excerpts...and are called SPARKLERS because they immediately ignite a memory of pleasant musical sounds within the listener. They are usually immediately recognizable to listeners, and pleasant to their ears. Studies have even shown Classical music to be conducive to learning and relaxation, so these guys are good to be in contact with.

Pure Sparklers

Pure Sparklers are the same as Sparklers except they contain no narration before them. By the time you get to them, you should have learned the names of the composers, be able to recognize their faces, be able to pronounce and spell their names, and know interesting facts about them. Finally then it's time to learn the names of the pieces themselves. This is where the Pure Sparkler CD's are used. There are two Pure Sparkler types of CD's: The Pure Sparkler Review CD, and the Pure Sparkler CD Set. There are study sheets and internet activities for the Pure Sparkler Review CD's (all found in Stage Description section where stages are prescribed), while the Pure Sparkler CD Set, is for pure listening.
