Thank you so much for following my store and for purchasing my products!
First, I have a special FREE offer for my customers.
If you complete these tasks, shoot me an email, and I will send you one free lesson of S-Cubed of your choice:
a) Please rate each of the products you've used with your students. I greatly appreciate the feedback. On TPT, the number and the content of the of ratings matters. One of my customers recently took the time to rate every single product she'd used, and I was most grateful! Here is a link directly to the store:
b) Please +1 each product that you've used on Google Plus. In the future, please do that for each product. It is simple to do and it helps tremendously to spread the word about the products. If you are using the YouTube Channel, you can +1 those as well.
If you aren't sure how to Google +1 something, click this link for info:
c) Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how you heard about my sight singing products. Was it a magazine article? A forum like Choralnet? Was it through Pinterest? Was it word of mouth? Was it by searching on TPT for Sight Singing? Did you find it at the top of the Arts search page on TPT while I promoted the product? Did you hear about it at a convention? A Webinar? I want to spend my time in effective ways as I continue to work to get the word out about S-Cubed. Having you share with me how you heard about my products will help me do that! Thanks in advance!
d) In that same email in which you share with me how you learned about S-Cubed, simply state, "I've completed the tasks from the Note to Followers". Then, request one free lesson from S-Cubed, and I will email the freebie directly to you within 48 hours.
Angeliv...I owe you one already because you've done it! Shoot me that email so I know where to send your freebie!
I greatly appreciate your help! I've worked really hard on this TPT adventure. I believe strongly in my Sight Singing products, and I think they can help teachers who struggle with teaching their young beginners this difficult skill. Please spread the word to your peers about how S-Cubed is working for you!
I am participating this week in a giveaway with other bloggers.

We've missed a lot of school in Atlanta, and I am getting a little nervous about our upcoming adjudicated festival preparation. For those of you who are following my YouTube channel and watching me prepare my own beginning students with their sight singing, you may notice several days of gaps in videos....well...those are the snow days! Hopefully, my little beginners will be ready with their two part sight singing skills in time for the March 11th event! We will all see the little reality show play out on YouTube! :) If you haven't subscribed, here is a link:
Barring anymore snow days, I expect to place somewhere between 4-8 more S-Cubed lessons up over the next month to help everyone get their students prepared with all of the skills they need to sight sing in 2 parts as promised when I began this journey last August!
....and that will complete Series One of S-Cubed. Once you've completed all of the approximately 30 lessons, your students will have awesome pitch-reading and rhythm-reading skills. I expect to perhaps create a Series 2 for S-Cubed in the school year 2014-2015, but the truth is, Series 1 gets you through the most challenging difficulties for this age group regarding pitch/rhythm skills and will serve you in ways you couldn't have imagined in your repertoire learning, etc. Once my own students have completed Series 1, I am able to send them off into a corner, give them "DO" and say "go". They come back to me in 5-10 minutes with their parts worked out, and life is good!
Using the skills in "real" music is the big payoff! Then, you get to focus on dynamics, articulation, diction and vowels and so much more.
Thanks again for following my store and for using my products! Please take advantage of my FREEBIE offer listed above. I am most grateful for your support!
The next time you hear from me, it will be SPRING! YIPPEE!!
Have a great week!
