Easier Searching and Customization in Reimagined Resource Manager
Your wish for easier search capabilities has been granted! Our new and improved Resource Manager provides better search returns and allows teachers to search within a specific category of the Quaver Program – making it easier to discover new resources or find the one you want to add to your custom lessons!
Introducing: Quaver Choral Resources
Warm up those vocal cords, Quaver Choral Resources are live! Teachers now have access to 10 new Choral lessons, each focusing on an original, world, folk, or classical piece. These adaptable lessons include icebreakers, warm-ups, canons, and more PLUS a handy Choral Toolbox loaded with additional resources for sight-reading, planning, assessments, and much more!
64 Songs now with Changeable Key and Tempo Options
The list of songs with adjustable scores continues to grow! Teachers can now choose from a variety of keys and tempos in an additional 65 songs in ClassPlay – bringing the total to more than 145 songs! New songs include Almost Summertime, Air Orchestra, and Lime Juice Tub, just to name a few. Search “Key/Tempo” in Resource Manager to find them all.
Beginner Guitar and Ukulele Added to QStrum
Our guitar composition Creative, QStrum, now features both beginner guitar and ukulele options! Why not add a composition assignment to our 5th grade Ukulele Project? Challenge your students to compose a song using QStrum and then have them play it on their own ukulele – allowing students to go through the process of creating, performing, responding, and connecting.
New State Song: Alabama
Alabama’s state song makes a great addition to our ClassPlay library, giving teachers in Alabama a jumping off point to discuss state history, geography, and more!
