Dr. Joseph Pisano Rocks!

Thanks to another student in our Music Technology class at Kent State, I heard about Dr. Joseph Pisano's blog.  I subscribed to it and have been reading his updates.  This post is great because there is a listing a bunch of blogs relative to the music educator.  Many of these I had not heard of or even considered to look for.  I already had a Sound Tree blog, but it was for my PLC Training.  There are Finale, SmartMusic, JWPepper and NPR blogs that are great on this list!

Enjoy!

Thanks Dr. P!

Uses of the iPhone in Music Education

Through the Music 4 Education Blog, I found this posting from the TI:ME OMEA conference that was held in January of 2011.  One of the sessions  held there was about the various uses of an iPhone in the Music Classroom.  I know at he AzMEA Conference in February, we had a similar session about the iPad in the music classroom.  This link is for his slide presentation and handout.

Theta Music Trainer

Thanks to Thomas J West Music Blog, I just learned about a new website that will help my students with ear training and other musical skills.  I think this would be a lot of fun to use if a teacher had a smartboard.  It's free to sign up and tends to our students desire for video games in the classroom.  Gotta love games with a learning purpose!
