How to Use SproutBeat and a Special Offer

How would answer these questions?

Do you want to easily integrate the iPad into your curriculum?

Do you despise a paper trail of random worksheets?

Do you often run out of ink for your printer?

Do you find that theory book assignments are rarely completed?

Do you need colorful and helpful worksheets to reinforce concepts for your students?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of the questions above, then you NEED SproutBeat.

In a nutshell, SproutBeat™ is more than a collection of worksheets – it’s a digital workbook with unlimited pages. It puts 1000+ resources at your fingertips on the iPad OR, you can print them off. It makes the task of tediously searching for supplemental worksheets a thing of the past. And, you can easily organize and assign them to individual students. The video below shows you how it works!

Exciting news about SproutBeat and RMIC

My recent resource, Rhythm Make it Count or RMIC for short, correlates SproutBeat worksheets with rhythm concepts. Eik and James Mar, the developers of SproutBeat graciously created folders within the app so you can easily access the worksheets included in RMIC.

Tip: The RMIC folders are available for those who purchase the Plus plan.

In addition, Eik and James have generously offered these coupon codes good through October 15, 2016 for 88pianokeys.me readers.

For the Plus Plan use the code 88KeysPlus ($72 for the year)
For the Standard Plan use the code 88KeysStandard ($48 per year)
Sign up for either of these as an annual plan (opposed to a monthly plan) using the codes above and the discount will be good for one year.

2) How to create folders of worksheets within the app.

3) A description of the three account levels in SproutBeat which can be set up on the website–not through the app!

  • Free: Limited Worksheets
  • Standard: 650 worksheets
  • Plus: all the content (always growing!) with the ability to reorganize
  • Studio: All the content plus the ability to set up accounts for each student which then allows you to assign and grade worksheets to single students.

4) How to use SproutBeat if you don’t have Wi-FI while teaching. Using the Offline option is handy but remember, this takes up storage on your iPad.

5) How to move worksheets from one folder to another.Sproutbeat_Site_v3-05

6) What happens when you tap on Refresh Library. Make sure to refresh the library to get the newest worksheets but do so before lessons begin because it takes a little time.

7) Words of advice: Take some time to look through worksheets and take advantage of the option to create your own folders. That way you can quickly find the ones you want organized the way you want.

8) Make sure to check the NEW folder for all the latest new worksheets.

9) Check out the GAME folder where Eik has designed games that can be played on the iPad with cute animal erasers OR they can be printed out for use at group lessons.Sproutbeat_Site_v3-03

FYI…

My resource Rhythm Make it Count is still on sale for $20 until October 1st. Get it here.
The recent 88 Creative Keys workshop called Lock In Rhythm Unlock Creativity is receiving rave reviews:
I really got so much out of yesterday’s webinar. The cups and “corn on the cob” saved the day for one student. -Tamy

Thank you so much for the great Rhythm Webinar this past Monday. I loved how you clearly and succinctly walked us through some very practical ways to teach rhythm. Thank you!! – Laurie

Okay, I have to say, this really helped me with creatively naming rhythmic patterns. –Rosemarie

If you’re wondering about the “corn on the cob” and “creatively naming rhythmic patterns,” the teachers are referring to the freebie included in the price of the webinar. Soon the same freebie will be for sale at Piano Teacher Planning Center for around $10. Why not get it for free and see fantastic ideas for teaching rhythm so that it sticks with your students?

This works like a charm when teaching 6/8 time. An index of “produce” words that correlate with various rhythms is one of the freebies with the workshop.
