Motivating Practice using Innovative Media – It’s in the Book

At our recent Captivate Orchestra Workshop – Saturday 27th October, I showed the students and parents this video that I edited up just before the workshop – the point is to show that our recently authored/published String Things Level 2 books contain innovative media to support and motivate student learning beyond the music lesson with a DVD of instructional videos and a quality CD with full orchestral backing tracks. But even when students have had the books for sometime, they seemed to be unaware of the treasures contained within – At the back of the book!!!
