SI Online: Students can access the streaming video MasterClasses and audio accompaniments for Books 1 & 2. No login is required, and it works on any device with internet access, including smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

The first level is dedicated to review of Book 2 concepts in order to account for the differentiation of ability levels and refreshing your students’ knowledge.

Introduce your students to ensemble playing skills with the MasterClass videos featuring a string ensemble.

Students can learn blending, intonation, and balance with the accompaniment recordings.

Helping facilitate better understanding of the more advanced material, new concepts are isolated and taught separately, including plenty of reinforcement material, allowing you to introduce new concepts in the order best for your students and your curriculum. For instance, SI for Strings never introduces new rhythms and new notes at the same time.
