A Revolutionary Method for Beginning MusiciansBy Bob Phillips, Peter Boonshaft, and Robert Sheldon Bass Book & Online Media
Sound Innovations for String Orchestra, Book 2 continues your student’s musical journey by teaching with a complete review of Book 1, and a segmented presentation of new concepts while introducing ensemble playing. Continue skill development with review, new keys, rhythms, tone development, and introductory scales and arpeggios. Following the unique Sound Innovations organization, the string orchestra 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 string ensemble videos and accompaniment recordings are available streaming at www.alfred.com/SIOnline from anywhere with internet access.
