Product Details


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, separate but simultaneous development of both hands, and beginning the bass in III position to develop early shifting.

The Teacher Curriculum Package for Book One includes Teacher's Edition Books Volumes I-IV, Teacher's Resource Guide, Teacher Lesson, Masterworks and Performance Selection CDs (1 Masterwork and Rhythms CD, 7 Lesson CDs, and 1 Performance Selections CD), Teacher's Support Pack, which includes Student worksheets #1-#54 (85 total), Teacher Forms and Rubrics (student assessment worksheets, 5 total), and Transparencies #1-#66 (67 total), Orchestra Progress Record Book One (OPR1), several orchestra arrangements by Sandra Dackow, and a final full orchestra concert piece. This Curriculum Package does not include a DVD.
