The popMATICS Pocket Guide supports the creative approach I take with students interested in learning popular styles of music. The book itself is not a comprehensive guide to my program, but rather a premium manuscript book that includes nine essential master charts and diagrams used for teaching chords, theory, common progressions, and all things associated with learning by listening. From this, practical lessons are created based on the interests of each student resulting in a unique, crafted experience. As students level up their reading through writing, and the pages become filled, no two books are the same.
This digital version of the Pocket Guide comes with a SINGLES folder, providing access to individual files for each of the nine charts and diagrams. There is a fully assembled copy that includes 42 pages of the whiteboard (blank) and medium-sized staff paper, just as it comes in the print version—great for students who want to record notes and have everything contained in one file.
There is also a 'mini' variant—excellent for teachers who want one compact file with access to all content.
The FOUNDATIONS folder has resources and templates that expand on the condensed master charts in the popMATICS Pocket Guide. The STAFF PAPER folder provides quick access to manuscript paper, and the VARIANTS folder contains additional miscellaneous files.
