No. 1: 3M Highlighter Tape

Example of use for highlighter tape

Benefits of using highlighter tapes

  • Write-able - you can write on these highlighter tapes instead of on the score!
  • Erasable - If you made a mistake on the highlighter tape, you can erase it and re-write on it (say a change in fingering)!
  • Reusable – you can peel off unwanted tapes and stick them on the inside cover of the homework book or the music, ready to be used next time!
  • Visual prompt – often kids only look at the music and ignore the pencil markings or comments we make on the page

Uses for the highlighter tapes

There are so many ways one can use the highlighter tapes, the sky’s the limit really. Here are some of the most common ones I use.
  1. Pattern Recognition
    • Steps vs Skips
    • Repeated patterns
    • Chords – broken or block
    • Position changes
  2. Attention to Score Details
    • Missing or incorrect notes
    • Fingering
    • Accidentals
    • Articulation – slurs, staccato, etc
    • Dynamic and Tempo markings
  3. Other information
    • Music analysis – key changes, section changes
    • Reminders for mood and character changes
