More focus on finger preparation and location, especially as students begin to cross strings.

Four chapters (Opus 1-4) correspond with the typical four quarters in a school year.
Achievable benchmarks give students a feeling of constant accomplishment.

Four full-page assessments provide clear tools for accountability and help measure student progress in numerous areas.

Critical Listening: Students listen to musical examples and are asked to critique performances, identify style / tempo markings, time signatures and more.

Playing by ear: Students listen to patterns and echo them back. Eventually, students are given basic tunes and are asked to learn / play them by ear.

Composer's Corner - Composition, Arranging, and Improvisation: Progressive lessons move from composition into basic arranging and early improvisation.

Theory and Terminology: Written exercises reinforce everything from terms and notation to composers and historical facts.

Performance: Musical exercises assess what students have learned in the Opus.

Special Bow Exercises: Studies enrich, supplement and further develop right-hand technique.

Full Curriculum Guide: Written by curriculum specialist Denese Odegaard, the complete curriculum guide includes goals, essential understandings, essential questions, outcomes, performance tasks, assessments and lesson plans.
