We are extremely aware of the educational value of any teacher’s aid product and do all we can to research and find stimulating supplements on a daily basis. Santorella Publication’s is proud to say we’ve found another incredible item, Posters byPhil Black.
The Phil Black Posters are a great example of what can happen when “graphic designer” meets “music educator”. Each colorfully graphic representation of key musical elements is sure to get your attention. The creative genius of Phil Black is certainly evident in each of these 11” x 17” posters. As every educator knows, keeping a high degree of enthusiasm is imperative for learning and captivating your student’s interest in a non-obtrusive manner is the key.
Memory and understanding through repetition can be accomplished in many ways. One simple method is with a good educational tool that teaches your students in an effortless manner and Phil Black’s Posters exclusively distributed Santorella Publications is just one of those tools. Although the majority of posters are guitar related, also learning “The Circle Of Fifths” is extremely important and a necessity for every student of music.
Rhythm is one of the elements that define music. If this element is absent, you’re just making noise. To be a good musician you must have a working understanding of rhythm. Phil Black’s “Rhythm” poster helps to create that repetitive hook upon which everything else hangs.
This graphically stimulating poster from Santorella Publications uses colorful arrows in 4/4 time as an indicator. Strum any chord on the red arrows and then miss or skip the strings intentionally on the clear arrows. These 16 exercises are a lot of fun and will get you playing interesting rhythmic patterns in a flash. Simply hang this poster in your music studio, practice room or your bedroom wall and practice this “at-a-glance” chart whenever you get the urge.
