Hello Quaver Blog World!

Dave Mastran – Quaver Co-Creator here.

We are proud to be launching a new curriculum from Quaver today!

We believe it will set the standard for how general music education and other subjects will be taught in the future.


IC_banner1Quaver’s Beyond Marvelous Curriculum for K-5 is a combination of advanced on-line technology and innovative course materials for general music education. 

There are many unique features in our Curriculum:

1. The course materials are state-of-the-art.  They represent a coordinated mixture of 70 brand new and traditional songs framed in an interactive environment, fun videos covering over 30 musical subject areas, hundreds of interactive activities and creative assignments for students, and multiple class projects emphasizing musical performance.

2. Our Lesson Plan Presentertm is a  new piece of technology that allows software applications to be sequenced into a Lesson Plan.  Our course materials are configured into 14 different classes of software apps (interactive songs, active bullet point lists, IWB activities, assessments, video presenters, audio files, etc)  creating over  2,000 different lesson screens in the full Curriculum.

3. We are also introducing our District Management Systemtm that gives the District Supervisor visibility over the activities of each teacher and the performance of students in the assessments.  A Supervisor can drill down and see what subjects are not being understood well by the students and reconfigure the curriculum to address any issues.

4. In Phase II, districts and teachers will be able to customize the curriculum to fit within their calendar and to integrate your existing materials into the lesson plans.

In all, we are very excited about the future!

We are striving to make your job more manageable from a time perspective and more effective by providing a greater range of choices on how you want to teach music.
