Noteflight Learn Adding Essential Elements

As a Hal Leonard company, we are excited to announce that Noteflight Learn is adding the Hal Leonard Essential Elements Method Books this fall! Teachers and students will be able to unlock these exercises in Noteflight Learn with the activation code from their Essential Elements book. The Essential Elements exercise scores can be adapted for composition and arranging assignments, as well as used for performance assessment and feedback with SoundCheck™, powered by MatchMySound™. All Noteflight Learn scores, including SoundCheck scores, the Noteflight Learn Content Libraries, and the Essential Elements Method Book exercises can easily be assigned with Google Classroom and other learning management systems.

Essential Elements Methods

Essential Elements Band and Essential Elements Strings methods have been used by many successful teachers and students over the years. These time-tested methods set the standard in instrumental music curriculum with sound instrumental pedagogy, thorough pacing for each level of student, a comprehensive curriculum, and engaging music for beginner, intermediate, and advanced players.

In addition, Essential Elements Interactive offers an easy set of technology tools for online learning, teaching, assessment, and communication that are ideal for teaching today’s band and strings students both in the classroom and at home. Plus, it is included with the purchase of any Essential Elements Method Book!
