One way to link students to the past might be to start with the present or current forms of music and move in retrograde into the past musical history that binds the present with the past. The treble and bass clef might be used for this procedure as well. Our present forms of music such as Rap, Hip hop, Jazz, Country, Rock and Roll, are linked to bass roots such as American Pop music, Big Band Sound, Blues and Spirituals. Once the common tones are found, the link to the past musical and written forms are formed.
