    Hello again. One more question for everyone. Any thoughts on how to get more students to practice at home?
    • JoyTunes - Hi Mr. Brock! I have a great tool for you I recently discovered. They are iPad apps that work directly with you acoustic piano, no need for wires. The apps are to help encourage students to practice their piano. The first is called Piano Dust Buster and its a simple introduction to piano, choose your favorite song and play sort of deal. There is also Piano Mania which is more educational teaching students sight reading and how to play with 2 hands. You can find the apps in the app store and they are both free to download. I believe these are wonderful tools to motivate kids more...

    • Mrs. Burgess - …and Piano Mania has a way you can set it up so that every time they practise you get to hear about it by e-mail (according to my daughter who is using it).

    Hello everyone. I found this video for recruiting kids into Beginning Band. I wanted to gather input before I make my own. Please reply with what you think.
    • Mr. Lovelock - I already use the video sequence starting from the news announcers up to the end of the list of celebrities (different people shown here, but sounding the same in a large part).

    I have also just found joy tunes. Looks like a great community. Someone asked about upclose videos of people playing instruments. This is a link to one I like to use. There are similar videos for each instrument family.

    Edmodo Community! Please help my guitar students by watching their original composition/music video that we have put on youtube. We're trying to get 1,000 views! Every year we write a song as a class as a part of our theory and composition unit. This year they wrote, "The Ballad of Si Robertson".... Thanks for your help!

    I am looking for "sound stories". Does anyone have any favorites?
    • Mr. Weiss - "Listen to the Rain" is a great one by Bill Martin that comes immediately to mind.

    • Mrs. Trasciatti-Holmberg - The Napping House, Rain Talk, Snow, Old MacDonald Had a Woodshop, and there is one by Wynton Marsalis but I can't remember the name. It is something like "Crash Boom Bop" or something.
