Product Description
Calling all Upper Elementary Teachers and General Music Teachers! This is the perfect S-Cubed Sight Singing Bundle for teachers who don't see their children every day, but who want their students to learn the strong foundations and fun learning principals of S-Cubed. It will also set your students up perfectly for middle school teachers who already use S-Cubed! It includes only the first 5 lessons of the program. For teachers who don't see their children often, this program will likely last you all year long, and your students will leave with a strong understanding of the use of solfege and how to sight sing notes from the staff a capella.

These lessons are intended to last 10-15 minutes per day and function as your sight singing lesson. Before you purchase this or any other bundle, 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. Purchasing this bundle requires a fairly large commitment from the consumer. If you are looking for a quick lesson plan for the day, start with Lesson 1-The Game of S-Cubed to test the waters!

With the S-Cubed System and philosophy, your students will stop moaning when you teach your sight singing lessons! Most book methods are incomplete and skip too many steps in the teaching process for our young beginners to have success in learning to sight sing and few methods are aimed directly at Middle School students. This method is aimed at improving the process of teaching sight singing so that it is a more enjoyable one for both the teacher and the students.

This offering is a bundle of the first five lessons offered in S-Cubed-Successful Sight Singing System for Middle School Teachers and their Students. By purchasing this bundle, you are committing to starting the S-Cubed Sight Singing process! Congratulations!

…and with purchasing a bundle rather than individual lessons, it is more economical as well!

This bundle will take approximately 4 weeks to teach when you follow the recommendations.

The philosophical lessons we teach in the S-Cubed process are much bigger than singing an eight measure two-part sight singing example, and that is one of the biggest reasons the S-Cubed Sight Singing process is enormously rewarding for the teacher as well as the students. We get to engage our personalities as we teach our students this life-long useful singing tool as well as the much bigger life lessons they may not understand until much later in their young lives!

For your convenience, here is a list of a few of the major goals of Lessons 1-5 are:

*Learn the game, Forbidden Pattern, and the philosophy behind it.
*Help our students recognize half steps and whole steps visually, kinesthetically and aurally.
*Train their ears by refining their ability to hear “in tune” singing versus “sharp” or “flat” singing.
*Increase their comfort level with the use of solfege and the Kodaly hand signs.
*Learn to recognize the visual differences between “line” notes and “space” notes.
*To successfully read and sing stepwise, unison pitch from a staff using solfege.

S-Cubed is a systematic, methodical, fun way to teach your young beginners how to Sight Sing successfully. Classroom management often improves as does the relationship between the teacher and the students through the philosophies and methods taught in S-Cubed. Teachers who have taken their students all the way through the entire 27 lesson system have taught their beginners how to independently and successfully sight sing in 2-parts with difficult syncopated rhythms and skips. Many of those teachers, including myself, accomplish that in 6 to 8 months depending on how often they see their students in just 10-15 minutes per day.

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 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.

The method is developed by a real teacher in a real classroom. 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”!

One successful step at a time…The S-Cubed way! Start with Lesson 1 today, and with consistent implementation, your young students will be Sight Singing a capella in two parts with difficult rhythms and steps/skips combined in a matter of months just like the students in the video links.

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.
