Lyric Highlighting

highlightingWe’ve also added an option to Highlight the Lyrics in over 40 ClassPlay songs and will be rolling it out to all songs in the future. Check out any of these new or updated songs to see the highlighting in action – just click the HIGHLIGHTING toggle to turn the feature on or off!

Example of Highlighting

Recorder Practice Mode

Recorder songs in ClassPlay have now been outfitted with a new activity – RECORDER PRACTICE – which includes all the same features as our FULL SCORE activity but at a slower tempo. We hope this helps you teach students the song at a more comfortable speed before moving on to performance tempo! Find RECORDER PRACTICE around the hub of Recorder songs like Perry the Sheep.
