BARTLETT PRESS MUSIC SCHOOL
So you'd like to develop your skills on your instrument and receive quick feedback from a professional educator. Then you're in the right place! I must ask you first, however, to check with your school music teacher as it is far better to enter the Levels Program through him or her, getting the direct feedback from someone who knows you closely. If they want to guide you through the Program, listen to your submissions and write reviews of your work for each exercise, this is preferable for all involved. Have them contact me to see how to get started.
Many public school music educators just don't have the time to spend. As a retired instrumental music educator with 40 years of experience, I now have the time and would be happy, also, to mark your successes by writing new exercises specifically designed for you, and each would bear your name. If you've checked with your school teacher and want to move forward, then speak with your parents about purchasing a subscription to the Bartlett Press Music School. There are several ways to take advantage of this online so read carefully the subscription details to determine the tier of subscription that would fit you best..
After you have purchased a subscription you will receive an email from me offering you a code through which you will take advantage of a FREE seat in the digital school with instructions on how to get a free account at the new, web-based SmartMusic and start using these exercises. Remember, with each submission, you will receive a thoughtful review. Sometimes you will receive a CONGRATULATIONS and sometimes the exercise will be re-assigned for more work but with specific points to target on your next attempt. As you complete the original twenty exercises, I will then write a new exercise with accompaniment that is designed around your needs as a player as I have assessed them through your past submissions. This exercise will bear your name and will serve as your "Level 11".
