Most of our song sets (similar to our DVDs) can be rented for as little as $0.99 a month, in 3 month increments. All these great features are only available with our newest partner UScreen, so please check our page there first! Best of all, there is No risk, it’s so easy to cancel at anytime!

Many of our customers have been happy with our Vimeo streaming options, that offer a 12 month rental for as little as $6.99 a year. One nagging issue with Vimeo streaming is that all the songs are combined in a single movie, and finding individual songs can be a challenge. The Vimeo player app allows you to scroll along the timeline to find the song you want, and we’ve added timecode tags to help find each song, but it’s not ideal for some teachers! Vimeo has not updated it’s services to improve this situation, so we are recommending UScreen for ease of use in the classroom! Even so, we've had wonderful feedback from our Vimeo customers, so you might want to check it out to compare features for yourself.
If you prefer the “Classic” style movies, with Heidi performing and singing along to the music, you can still find these on Vimeo as well as some older song sets that we have yet to move over to UScreen, or drop us an email and we’ll see if we can get those up on UScreen for you!
What you'll need for all streaming options: A fast internet connection, an up-to-date browser on your computer or device, or a playback app for your individual device.
It's always important to test your device before you make your rental purchase through UScreen or Vimeo, as there is little we can do if your device is unsupported or if you have a poor or inconsistent internet connection. Heidi discovered this when she tried to use the Vimeo on her school computer, only to realize the Window's Internet Explorer browser was outdated, and she had to call the district for an update. An easy test is to verify that the movie "trailer" plays well on your device or computer, if it does, you should not have a problem with your rental or subscription.
