Before you purchase this or any other bundle, please research my products. You should read all of the detailed product descriptions of the lessons included in this bundle. The individual lessons are located in my store. This will help you be very clear about what to expect before you buy. This program is cumulative in nature and is intended to be completed in sequence beginning with Lesson 1 and ending with Lesson 27 to achieve the best results. This is a training system that includes lesson plans. When you read each individual product description, you will find preview packets that include a YouTube video preview link in which I share with you what to expect in each 10-15 minute daily Sight Singing lesson and many other links to help you gather all of the information you need. Please do not purchase until you've taken the time to become an informed consumer. S-Cubed is a very large undertaking that will help you tremendously in your classroom! Hundreds of hours have been spent creating, editing and making this available with great care taken to provide accurate information. Teachers deserve it.
This Bundle includes everything from Level ONE and Level TWO. It also includes the "Sight Singing Examples ONLY" for both levels if you prefer to handout your sight singing examples rather than project them.
If you purchase this, you are committing to a process that is likely to take you two years to complete...and the results are WORTH it!
Here are some supplemental purchases you should consider. Two of them are posters for your classroom and the third is an incredible homework/practice tool designed by Mr D to complement S-Cubed.
I highly recommend that you also take a look at adding Music Prodigy to this purchase as well. Click this link to go into my store to download two free items that help explain more about Music Prodigy. This link will also be helpful as you gather info about how I use Music Prodigy to supplement S-Cubed. If you have questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Level ONE of S-Cubed has been reviewed and vetted since 2013 by teachers all over the world. Level TWO was released in early 2016.
S-Cubed is more than just a sight singing program. The benefits from committing to the S-Cubed journey impact classroom management, time management, behavior, and will help you build your choral program because your students and you will enjoy the journey toward music literacy.
*Have fun while you are teaching! Engage your personality.
*Use gentle competition between you and your students to increase their motivation to succeed.
*Reward and acknowledge success each and every step of the way.
*Teach ALL of your students to sight sing…not just the students who take private instrument lessons.
*Use games and daily 10-15 minute processes to keep the process fun and effective while you continue to teach your concert music.
*Improve classroom management through the S-Cubed process. When they are successful, they look forward to coming to your class!
*S-Cubed is designed specifically for middle school teachers and their students. It is not a hybrid of a high school method. Let’s face it! Although many high school teachers are using S-Cubed with success, I strongly believe that middle school children have specific needs, and I created this program to address them! S-Cubed addresses those needs.
It is designed and used by a real middle school teacher in a real middle school classroom with well over 20 years experience in an urban public school classroom��not an academic or someone with limited experience with this age group.
*In just months, your beginning students will be sight singing 2-part, eight-measure examples independently a cappella with just five minutes preparation time. Those examples will include difficult skips and syncopated rhythms. They will have learned it in the group setting in your classroom the S-Cubed way. By the end of Level TWO, your students will confidently read three parts/SAB a capella and they will be able to successfully sing very difficult chromatic pitches from the page in tune.
The procedures in this bundle follow the procedures laid out in the three free previews of S-Cubed. Please check out those freebies in my store to learn more before you purchase this bundle.
This method is absolutely intended to be cumulative in nature. Teachers should begin with Lesson 1 and implement each lesson progressively and regularly. .
S-Cubed is the 21st century to improve how you teach Sight Singing. Each power point lesson includes re-usable PDF files (Rhythmic exercises, sight singing examples, guides to the philosophical approach for success). Best of all, each lesson includes direct video links to numerous teaching tips and actual teaching examples for each specific lesson in order to help you see the method in action with real beginners. It is carefully progressive in sequence in a manner that encourages and increases the chances of success for your Upper Elementary and Middle School students each and every day. The daily success helps them to be more likely to enjoy the process of learning to Sight Sing and will also help you enjoy the teaching process. It’s like having your own personal sight singing coach. With S-Cubed, we gently use competition between the teacher and the students, and we celebrate success.
S-Cubed is like a teacher workshop that includes lesson plans and lesson guidance by a teacher who is using it in his classroom everyday. These are real materials that are used in my classroom daily. All of the materials can be used over and over again. You will not need to buy new books every few years.
S-Cubed is the perfect system to use in the Chorus or General Music Classroom with inexperienced students. They will love “beating the page”!
I am often asked if the program works for high school. I can only say that this program was created for middle school, but that many high school teachers have used it and are having success. I've included many of the reviews here. I made sure to choose some reviews from the high school teachers I've heard from over the last several years. You should also check out all of the reviews on TPT.

Recognize what the children don't know. Don't fault them for not knowing it... Then, teach it to them in a fun way they will remember forever. ...That's the philosophy of S-Cubed.
