I poured my heart and soul into this program and shared everything I’ve learned over the last 25 years of teaching this age group as openly as I know how to do. I spent thousands of hours on it. I did it in order to help other teachers succeed as the teach beginners.

“Saved my life”
I am a first year teacher and this program has saved my life. I struggled in my classroom with teaching new students how to sight-sing because they hated it and I hated teaching it... This program helped my new singers accomplish remarkable ratings at Large Group Performance Evaluation.

“Coming to the rescue... in the trenches like me”
As a middle school choral director for the past 15 years... I’ve picked from assorted books and random sight-singing sheets but this bundle is both sequential and educationally sound.... ...Hats off to you Duncan for coming to the rescue. Only wish I had purchased this years ago. It’s obvious you’re in the trenches like me.

“Preparation for Large Group Performance Evaluation”
Mr. Dale Duncan takes a complex musical language and simplifies it for beginners... The activities only take a few minutes to accomplish with step-by-step activities in preparation for LGPE (large group performance evaluation).

“Fun and motivational”
I am beyond excited to use the entire program! They beg for “poison pattern!” Thank you for your hard work in developing this, and for sharing it with the rest of us!
