Alfred remains on the cutting edge of innovation in music education with Sound Innovations, the world’s first customizable method, eBooks, interactive learning tools and imaginative multimedia. We wouldn’t have achieved so much in these 90 years without the spirit and hard work from Alfred’s staff, authors, editors, composers and partners.”
