I can't get Interactive Music Room to work on Windows 8
Easitech needs to be told to run in "Compatability Mode". You will find instructions on how to do this here.

I can't get Interactive Music Room to work on Mac OSX Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks
Easitech is no longer supported for newer versions of OS X. However, if Easiteach has been working for you on an older version of OSX and you have updated your Mac or setup a new Mac from Time Machine, it should continue to work. New installations on the newer versions of OS X no longer work. We are currently developing "universal" versions of the Interactive Music Room titles that do not require Easiteach. These should become available later in 2014. There will be an upgrade path for current users.

We have just got or are about to get new Macs. What should I do?
Make sure that you initialise your new Mac using the Time Machine backup from your old one. This way you should be able to continue using Interactive Music Room. Rasiteach and so iMR will not work if freshly installed onto current versions of OS X.

I AM ASKED FOR A SERIAL NUMBER WHEN LOADING EASITEACH SOFTWARE
The Interactive Music Room package does not require a serial number to load the Easiteach software. If you are asked for a serial number when loading it onto a computer, this will refer to your school computer system. See your school technician for advice.

There is a scroll bar running down the right hand side of the screen.
IMR 1 was created using Easiteach 3.4. If you are running Easiteach 3.6 you may find the lessons open up showing a scroll bar running down the right hand side of the screen. This will go away once you navigate through the lesson or move an object on the first page. There may be a few lessons that open with a scroll bar along the bottom, this however will not go away. This issue does not affect how the activities run.

The sequential numbers are ‘slow’.
Easiteach is best run using Windows XP or earlier systems. If you are running the Vista or Windows 7 operating systems, activities that require touching sequential numbers to reveal the next page in the story or sequential dance steps, will run slower with a lag time when touching buttons/icons.

Everything was working fine this morning – but this afternoon there were wrong sounds and/or images behaving strangely (disappearing on touch, not dragging etc)
Shut your computer down and restart it. This ‘rest’ should resolve the problem. If you intend to use Easiteach® all day, shut your computer down and restart it in the middle of the day.

Instructional Videos
There is an instructional DVD included with the package which has Cheryl demonstrating the various fuctions available for you to use - and how to use them. The videos on this DVD are also available for you to watch on-line.
You can see them here.

ERRATA
We have been alerted to an error in the teachers book for 'The Interactive Music Room book 1'.
On p 41, the BLM is incorrect - it refers to tempo and should refer to dynamics.
You can download the correct copy of the BLM here
