Class In Action

"This was my second day using Breezin' Chapters 1 & 2. The 7's love it, especially the "Name the Time Signature" musical examples in Ch. 2. Everyone was engaged and had their hands up to participate & get up to the SMART


Board. Thank you for such an excellent curriculum product we can USE in the classroom! It's awesome."

Tips & Tricks

In a Low Tech situation? Don't fret!
If you don't have a computer lab or SMART Board, Breezin' Thru is still great for you!

1. See It - Hear It Lessons: Use an LCD Projector & Screen to present lessons and demonstrate drills.

2. Mad Dash Drills: Assign several drills for students to practice from home, then have them do one as a paper drill in class on a Friday or Monday. Time it and turn it into a competition!

3. Composer's Corner:  Engage students in a composition activity linked to the concepts being learned. Use paper or try the free online notation software Noteflight at this address:
