That was our primary goal when we created In the Groove with BigShinyBrass. We want the whole process to be one that kids can engage with; exploring new music, pushing themselves to improve as they rise through 3 difficulty levels, and all in an environment in which the 21st century child feels comfortable.
Each piece is accompanied by a fast and slow backing track, recorded using state-of-the-art sampling technology, in musical styles they can relate to. Let's face it, they want to be playing along with music that sounds like Taylor Swift or Katy Perry.
You can play along using the on-screen sheet music on YouTube, or download and print a PDF (and mp3 backing tracks).
All pieces are colour-coded into three difficulty levels: Beginners (for the first year of playing), Improvers (roughly equivalent to ABRSM Grade 1) and Superheroes (Grade 2).
