Designed for ages 5-9, with an emphasis on Sound Before Sight. Level 1 books are written for the Dood and Toot instruments. Written for the general music classroom, level one encourages students to learn by ear as much as possible. This level is available in either standard or iconic notation.

Designed for ages 6-10, with an emphasis on transitioning to notation. Level 2 books are written for the jSax, jFlute, jHorn, and Clarineo instruments. Books are intended to build on the experiences in Level 1 and those learned in general music classes.
