We hope you are finding the SI Beta site and blog useful. Our goal is to facilitate an open an honest dialogue with the teaching community in order to provide you with the best possible experience with SI. Unfortunately, we have hit a snag in our final testing process that will delay the shipping and printing of the customized Percussion book (Snare Drum, Bass Drum & Accessories) in SI for Concert Band.
Please note: This delay only impacts the customized Director’s Choice Percussion book and Combined Percussion book – all other customized student books, including Mallet Percussion, will still be printed and shipped in time to arrive within 10 business days of placing your order.
If you require any Percussion student books with your custom method, they will be printed and shipped in late September. A more specific date will be provided after the Aug 16 launch. Your customized Percussion book will be saved in your account and you will receive a notice when it is available to order. At that time, you can log on and place an order for the book. You may use the same purchase order that was used for the rest of the student books.
In order to prevent this from affecting your class progress, we will offer a PDF download of the Percussion book you have customized of all pages and audio files in Level 1. This will allow your Percussion players to join the rest of the band uninterrupted, and will provide content for approximately two months of lessons.
We will keep you updated on any further progress related to this issue and encourage you to share any feedback or concerns either on this blog or by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
