We now offer grade 8 Step-by-Step Classroom Music II program in PDF with embedded audio. This can be used on computer or tablet, even a smart phone if the screen is large enough. How does this help the Music Teacher deliver the curriculum to an elementary class? A teacher can use the electronic version of the music teacher manual on a mobile device for reference during the class and use the SMART Student Edition on an interactive whiteboard for the student. The student editions contain interactive capabilities of the SMART boards e.g. playing audio, filling in answers, cloning, moving elements, erase to reveal and linking to our online Interactive Composition Tool. This application allows real-time rhythm, hand sign and pitch exploration!
