Awarded an A+ by elementary educators, the Children s Music Journey Series addresses music reading and understanding objectives identified by elementary school music curriculums and is a valued solution for elementary school districts. The program incorporates a "teach, practice, apply" methodology that successfully helps young children learn to read music, play piano with both hands, compose and improvise. The program provides an excellent background for continued development with the piano and is an ideal preparation for band programs. In 2006, the American Federation of Teachers selected CMJ to represent 21st Century elementary music programs.
