Book 3 of the String Basics Teacher Edition contains a wealth of essential resources for the best possible teaching of the String Basics series at grade 3 level and beyond.
This book is the perfect teaching companion for using this method in an ensemble in the classroom. It contains teaching strategies with proven success that match every step of the String Basics material, so that you can maximise the effectiveness of your teaching, without sacrificing any of the notable features of the String Basics programme that make it so valuable. These strategies are divided into the two categories of performance and musical understanding – both essential to the teaching of students in an orchestra. Guidelines and signposts help teachers to know exactly how to teach each section, while the practical advice will help students to gain experience in an orchestra.
Each Teacher Edition comes with a DVD containing video lessons and accompaniment practice tracks which help make the book come alive. However, the real icing on the cake is the Interactive Teacher’s Studio, a corollary to the popular Interactive Practice Studio that comes with the student books. This offers an even greater number of helpful tips and strategies to enable you to make the most of your String Basics Teacher Edition.

”The teacher’s edition includes information about almost every exercise and tune…Without a computer and the internet, this method is good. With access to computers and internet service this method is amazing and is a benchmark in classroom string education.”
