- Full scores, which include piano/guitar accompaniments, enhance students’ performance experience in rehearsals, recitals, and concerts.
- A Resource Center helps you easily find comprehensive lesson plans and quizzes, directs you to related topics in Excellence in Theory and Teaching Band with Excellence, and shows standards met through study and performance of the exercise and correlated enrichments.
- Standards-based Objectives for Student Learning assist in planning, and provide a basis for evaluation of student progress.
- Practical teaching tip pop-ups provide solutions to instrument-specific challenges, guidance for rehearsal structure, and ideas for planning and teaching more effectively.
