General Description

Created to reinforce learning from Foundations all the way through Challenge IV, this 8-panel, laminated resource is built for the musical journey in your family. Inspire a maestro today!

The front (right) panel shows a diagram of classical orchestras, helping students locate the different sections by seating arrangement. This panel and the one next to it also depict and name the instruments commonly found in an orchestra, including suggestions for listening practice. (Foundations families will enjoy access to these images in one convenient location.)

The left panels on this side introduce students to the concepts of dynamics and tempo, using visuals to enhance memory. These panels are packed with information about conducting, the physics of sound, musical scales, and audio recording. A timeline of composers studied in Foundations and Challenge II runs across the top.

The second side of Trivium Tables: Music is a composer’s dream. The panel on the right shows the Circle of Fifths diagram (central to music theory), as well as mnemonic devices for the order of sharps and flats. Major and minor scale patterns, scale degree names, and interval qualities grace the panel on the left.

The centerpiece of Trivium Tables: Music is the 88-key keyboard that runs along the bottom of all four panels, complete with a marker for middle C, allowing students to compose, transpose, and practice on the go, while transcribing their compositions in a full 16 inches of reusable music staves, above.
