This package is accessible to the experienced classroom music teacher as well as to new teachers. The accompanying disc contains interactive visuals for each lesson in three formats: Smart Notebook, Promethean ActiveInspire, and Microsoft PowerPoint. While the files in Smart Notebook and ActivInspire are intended for use with their corresponding interactive whiteboards, they may also be projected onto any normal screen or whiteboard. The interactive portions of each lesson would then be manipulated solely from the teacher’s computer.
