Sample E-books


The Learning Platform E-books are replacing the pre-existing Replay product. If you have previously purchased Replay, you will still have full access to the product which can be accessed as normal via MusicGurus. All existing Replay customers will have access to the equivalent Learning Platform E-book product at no extra cost.

  • All non-hardcopy purchases of available Rockschool and RSL Classical graded publications come with access to our e-book technology. You simply have to select your desired grade e-book product on the RSL Awards shop, complete your check out, and voila… you will be able to access the e-books via your RSL Awards account.

  • The sheet music player for pieces and exercises can be used offline after the item has been loaded.

    Teachers/learners who want to use the e-book without internet connection (e.g. in a classroom without WiFi coverage) should load the piece or exercise first where they have connection, leave the browser window open and then move to the room that doesn’t have connectivity.

    The sheet music player will work for playback, even without internet connection. However, the recording and feedback function will not work.

  • Yes, there are 3 playback options available:

    1. Demo Audio, which plays the full track including the book instrument;
    2. Backing Track, which plays the track without the book instrument;
    3. Click Track, which plays only the metronome.
  • Yes, the learner can make a recording playing along. The e-book system then analyses the performance and gives a feedback score on the accuracy of playing/singing.

    To start a recording click on the REC button on the right-hand side.

    The browser will prompt for permission to use the microphone. The green bar graph below the Record button indicates whether sound is being received. Please ensure in system settings of the device that the correct microphone is selected.

    Headphones are required for the recording as the backing track sound would affect analysis of the performance.

    There are four options for the recording:

    • Click Track: Recording along to a metronome only
    • Follow Me: The recording follows the performance in relation to the score
    • Backing Track: The backing track is played back, i.e. minus the book instrument
    • Demo audio: The full track, including the book instrument is played back

    Please note: the recording function / feedback technology is not currently available for drums.
