Orchestra Expressions™ provides music educators at all levels with easy-to-use, exciting tools to meet daily classroom challenges and bring new vibrancy and depth to teaching music. The lessons were written based on the National Standards for the Arts in Music -- not retro-fitted to the Standards. The program is music literacy-based and satisfies reading and writing mandates in orchestra class. The pedagogy involves a "four-fingers-down" start for every instrument and separate but simultaneous development of both hands.

Each student book features an attractive full-color interior with easy-to-read notes and includes:
-A 92-track accompaniment CD that covers Units 1-18 (a second CD covering Units 19-33 is available separately, individually as item 00-EMCO1006CD or in a 25-pack as item 00-MCO1007CDP)
-Historical notes on some of the most notable composers of orchestral music
-A thorough glossary of musical terms

Future reprints may be printed with black and white interiors.
