Hello 7th Grade Band Parents and Students,
We have a new and exciting online program from our Standard of Excellence Books!
The Interactive Practice Studio is a great way for students to have some extra help with practicing at home. There are recordings to play with, a way to record themselves, a tuner to check their notes, and a metronome to keep time.
The directions on the inside cover are incorrect, so I wanted to make sure and give a step-by-step way to get set up with the IPS.
1. Go to www.kjos.com
2. On the top menu, select “Digital Products” on the upper right hand side of the page
3. Click “Interactive Practice Studio”
4. Scroll down and click “Download Software for Windows”
After the download is complete, it will ask for a License Code, which is on the inside cover of the red book. (We realize some might not have these codes and are working on how to get more from the company)
This is also a reminder that students should be practicing a minimum of fifteen minutes per night. A little bit everyday goes a long way! If your child has difficulties with the computer program, please have them stop in with their computers, and we can try to troubleshoot.
Thanks for your support!
