in In the Quaver Classroom!

On Mondays, we bring you a Tip of the Week here on the blog to make using your Quaver resources easier than ever.

Click Play to listen to our Tip of the Week jingle! (Email readers, click-through to listen to the Tip of the Week Tune)

Today’s Tip of the Week is for Users of ClassPlay – available in our QK-5 Curriculum, to Essentials users in a 6-Song Sampler, and as part of our 30-Day Preview!

Have you checked out our new even-easier-to-use ClassPlay Search?

We showed you the original ClassPlay search functionality back in September, but like most things at QuaverMusic.com, we continue to find ways to improve and upgrade our programs!

Log in to ClassPlay today and you’ll find a new Menu Screen:

ClassPlayHome

Now you can easily jump to All ClassPlay Songs or skip to one of our most popular searches:

  • Recorder Songs
  • Songs with Full Score Arrangements
  • Songs with Video or Animation
  • Songs with Extended ClassPlay Activities

ClassPlay 2

From any of those buttons you’ll find our improved ClassPlay Song List, with an interactive search field that filters as you type. Talk about easy access to the song your students are begging to sing again!

SongFeatures

You’ll also notice a new Song Features Key to help you locate songs with the activities you need right away!

  • Full Arrangement: Score is available for the melody and additional instrumentation
  • Video/Animation: Contains video and/or animated sequences in one or more activities
  • Extending Activities: Contains activities unique to this song

 

Click the SELECTION CRITERIA button to filter even further!

Selection Criteria

You can select from a variety of criteria – like Style, Instruments, Meter, or Grade Level. You can even select multiple options in each category!

Don’t forget to press CLEAR ALL to reset the search at any time!
