Multiformat disc in every student book
Every student receives an instrument-specific play-along disc in their book. These discs include same number of audio exercises as before, but now also include computer software for practice and assessment assistance. The DVD portion includes a 15-min. start-up video specific to each instrument as well as all of the book's audio exercises.

Enhanced starting system

Enhanced Learning System
Book 1 uses unmeasured Long Tones to establish good tone production from the very beginning, and uses Quarter Notes to teach pulse and rhythm. By exercise 14 your students will be playing well-known melodies and enjoying the excitement of playing in the band!
The unique considerations of Horns and Oboes are difficult to address using a classroom band method, so we've created special pages for these instruments with their own optional starting systems.
Optimum Reinforced Learning
New material is carefully paced, sequential and immediately reinforced. New notes are approached in the easiest ways, then gradually played within wider skips and different rhythms. Each new rhythm is introduced as a Rhythm Rap, then repeated on simple pitches, and finally placed in an appropriate melodic setting.
Theory, History, Cross-Curriculum and Creativity
It's all right in each student book, correlated with the music and concepts they are currently learning. This is by far the most efficient way to meet the National Standards, integrate other subjects into the music curriculum, and still teach the essentials of music performance.
Daily Warm-Ups & Rubank Studies
Establish good practice habits, tone and technique with the two sets of Daily Warm-ups included in each book. The Rubank Scale and Arpeggio Studies cover the four major keys taught in Book 1, all adapted from Rubank's "best-of-the-best" to expand your students' technical skills.
12 Full Band Arrangements
Research shows that students are more likely to succeed (and stay in band) if they perform a concert for parents within the first 8 weeks. T
