Don’t Take Our Word For It …
Hear what other teachers like you have experienced:
I teach over 520 students split amongst 9 choral ensembles, grades 5-12. The search for a sight-reading program which was engaging, well-scaffolded and fit for all of my choirs has finally ended!
I have never before found a program which was so easy to use!
A clean and simple format that lays out every lesson for you …
Each lesson incorporates ALL aspects of sight-reading on a single page. Lessons may be printed and distributed to your students. However, we recommend using some form of overhead projection, which has several advantages: the entire class is focused on a single task together, and once procedures are learned, the entire lesson can take 4 minutes or less; and, the teacher can correct or relocate the class quickly.
A Program for Every Grade …
Step-by-step skill-building from Kindergarten through Grade 5
FUNdamental Music Mastery contains six graded levels, K through Grade 5, with 30 lessons in each grade level (25 in Kindergarten book).

FMM helps ensure your students are receiving the fundamentals in line with national standards!
