Loads of festive fun!
12 Christmas tunes, plus fun games to aid composition and improvisation
All the tunes have a melody and bass part, with 2 songs including chords. Some use of F#, C#, G#, and Bb. Melody lines lie between middle C (red circle) and E an octave above (grey triangle). Bass parts tend to stay in the octave below middle C (squares), with occasional use of the octave below that (crosses).

Tailor your lessons to your pupils
Figurenotes software allows you to adapt all your teaching material to include Figurenotes stages 1 and 2. This means that you can produce exactly what your pupil needs (note names, Figurenotes in Stage 2, larger parts, etc.) and change this over time.
Write your own tunes
Release your inner Mozart, Taylor Swift or Jimi Hendrix and get creative. Figurenotes software allows you to easily create your own music.
Use with other programmes
Figurenotes software allows you to take a part written in Sibelius, MuseScore, or other notation software and turn it into Figurenotes, and vice versa. You can also export as MIDI and open your creations in programmes like GarageBand or Logic
Using blank spaces to be filled in by your pupils with different colours means that your worksheets look great and can be created in an instant! You can easily change the size of your Figurenotes bars, so making flashcards for the classroom becomes really simple.
Accessible and Inclusive
The software uses graphic images with very limited text. We also created a clear, fuss-free screen layout, with neutral colours. This enables people with autism, dyslexia, visual difficulties, or difficulty focusing to use the software more easily.
The software works in stages 1 and 2. To create scores in stage 3, we have plugins for MuseScore and Sibelius available via the Figurenotes Accessible Music Hub
Take a look at our Software FAQs and video tutorials for more information.
