Should I print all pages for students?

Yes!  Each page is designed with students in mind.

  • Page 1: Cover art
  • Page 2: Description, tips for students to make it their own, terms of use
  • Page 3+: Music
  • Last page: Other music they may like

Students love a bit of cover art since it can help them get into the mood and story of a piece.   I’ve included ways to adapt or play with the music so students become part of the creative process.

The terms of use are there to educate students and their families about copyright law.  We know, but they may not realize what they are innocently doing may cause you to lose your studio licence.
