FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 3, 2011 — Rhythm Band Instruments is very proud to announce a new partnership in music education with Note Knacks(R) Music, LLC.
Note Knacks(R) is a system of music symbol manipulatives and corresponding curriculum. The system was created and developed by Kristin M. Pugliese. Mrs. Pugliese earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Rochester and her Master of Science in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College. She has been a professional educator for over 15 years and has presented at national
education conferences including the Georgia Music Educator’s Conference and the Florida Music Educator’s Conference.
Note Knacks(R) is based on visual and tactile learning in conjunction with written and community learning. The Note Knacks(R) system crosses disciplines and teaches broad meta-concepts in math, such as fractions and algebra, as well as comparative and relational writing skills through
the use of musical and graphic notation. The curriculum is particularly effective with Kindergarten through Second Grade children, but it also expands easily to higher grades.
Rhythm Band Instruments is the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of Note Knacks(R). For additional information, contact Dennis Klophaus, School Sales Manager, at Sales@RhythmBand.com or Kristin Pugliese at Kristin@NoteKnacks.com.
