"How to" Guide for S-Cubed users

Quick Reference Guide to using S-Cubed Middle School Sight Singing Program

What is in the Complete Bundle?

*27 lessons that include everything you need to teach S-Cubed Level ONE.  This includes video examples of me teaching the program, video teaching tips for each lesson, and step by step daily guide.
*”Sight Singing Examples ONLY” is included.  You can use it if you’d like to hand the examples to your students.  It’s good for people who don’t have a Promethean Board.  It is easy to copy.


What is in the MEGA Bundle?

*All of Level ONE and all of Level TWO.  This includes video examples of me teaching the program, video teaching tips for each lesson, and step by step daily guide.
*”Sight Singing Examples ONLY” is included.  You can use it if you’d like to hand the examples to your students.  It’s good for people who don’t have a Promethean Board.  It is easy to copy.

How long will it take to teach the Complete Bundle?

*Everyone’s teaching situation is different.  I see my students daily for 50 minutes.  It takes me 27 weeks to teach it.  I teach S-Cubed about 4 times weekly on average.  We take about 10-15 minutes per day.

How long will it take to teach Level TWO?

*It will take about 18 weeks if you see them daily and follow the procedure listed above.

Can I get a synopsis of what is in each lesson?

*I have spent many hours creating the Product Descriptions on Teachers Pay Teachers.  This will be the best place for you to get a general idea of what is coming in each lesson.   Start here.  Inside the description, you will find more hyperlinks that will take you on a Lesson tour starting with Lesson 1 and progressing through the entire program.
I have also included these three links that are intended to inform you a bit more on how to use this program:


What is Music Prodigy and do I have to use it with S-Cubed?

Music Prodigy is a computer/app based program that allows students to practice and teachers to assess their students.  I tried the program for one year with my 340 middle school students, and I liked it so much that I decided to supplement S-Cubed by creating homework examples specifically for Music Prodigy.  When you purchase the “Add on”, you and your students gain access to the homework examples.  In S-Cubed, your students begin actually sight singing during Lesson 4.  There is one homework example for each example that is included in S-Cubed.  I wrote them to complement what we worked on that day in class.  I intend for teachers to assign the complementary homework example on the day the material was covered in class.  It will take most children no more than 5 or 10 minutes to complete.

I used S-Cubed for many years without Music Prodigy, and my students were successful.  However, Music Prodigy has simplified individual assessment for me significantly. 

Here is a link that includes a bit more information about Music Prodigy.


Thank you so much for your purchase!  Best of luck as you work through the program!
