Hi mate,

Here below is a standard page that students get, it has some good resources, just take what you think is usable, not much really really easy stuff for kids though. use your ears and write out something like ode to Joy on the top E string

This is your private folder where content will be placed for you to download lesson material such as PDF’s for scores and mp3 and video files. Please log on regularly and ALWAYS save the material on your computer and keep your own backup as all files are subject to periodic deletion from student folders so that our servers are not overloaded. I suggest after each lesson you check your folder for material and save it to your computer, as I do not keep archives… To save files click on them or you may have to right click (or option click) them.


Have fun learning!
