Book Quest – Sound Innovations

This is something I did for one of my classes during my internship. It is designed to help the students to become familiar with the layout of their method book. I think there was one issue in that a few of the Sound Innovations books for specific instruments had things on different pages than the book I used to create the book quest. As I do not own copies of all the instruments’ books, and this even occurred so long ago, I cannot verify this discrepancy.
