Statement of Intended Use
Music Studio products are designed to provide music educators with quality content to easily use in a variety of settings. We believe whole group, teacher-led instruction to be the the norm in the music classroom, and have laid out the Teacher Experience and Resources Page to reflect that belief.
There are numerous resources that teachers will want to use in group and one-to-one settings, and the best way to plan for these settings is to test the resources the students will access on the devices that will be used, noting load times and instructions that will need to be communicated.
Music Studio resources are media-rich. We have taken care to select high-quality recordings and
images, and so some resources may not load as quickly as others. It is important to plan and test
before presenting resources to students.
