We are proud to announce the arrival of our Music Room Alive series – where we do the teaching for you.

  • Little or no preparation

Check out the video of the intro to the first lesson below.

We are in the process of adapting all Music Room levels. Music Room Level 2 (suitable for years 1-3) is the first we have ready with Amana Temple doing a brilliant job of leading your class through a whole year’s music program. We have pre-released Unit 1 and we are making it available to you FREE OF CHARGE until the end of April next year (2023). The full title (Units 1-4) should be available by October this year.
