Following the unique Sound Innovations organization, the band method contains levels, each of which is divided into several sections that introduces concepts separately, providing benchmarks, assessment, and intermediate goals. The isolation of new concepts helps facilitate the understanding of more advanced material. Sound Advice sections throughout the Teacher’s Score assist with quick and easy-to-use tips and suggestions. Plenty of practice and performance opportunities are also provided in order to reinforce each lesson. MasterClass lessons with woodwind and brass ensemble videos and accompaniment recordings are available streaming at www.alfred.com/SIOnline from anywhere with internet access.
