Here is the link to a LiveBinder with links to the sites that we use in my middle school Music Tech class: WMS Music

This is a web page with some examples of final semester projects created by my 6th and 7th grade students.: WMS Music Tech

All of the creation is online using free, or in some cases (JamStudio and Animoto) free education accounts.

My Daughter (9 yrs ) is extremely interested in Music and Dance, she is well versed with various forms of music and dance including Indian Classical, Folk and Semi Classical. She has been learning through observation, formal training and is currently learning Indian Classical music from a very learned Guru. How can I help her learn more about other forms of music and dance and open her mind to the diversity and beauty across the world. Looking forward to suggestions.

I was wondering how many of you use technology with your Jr. High General Music Students? I've notice many have posted using garage band, but what other options are out there? Do any of you teach guitars or keyboards to your students? Do you do a music history component?

Sanjoli,
Have you thought of looking into community music schools in your area? Many such schools offer music appreciation classes for children, introducing them to new instruments and styles of music.

I'd like to see a mentor listing made like "Craigslist" for these purposes...I don't know of anything other than classifieds which are spuratic and unreliable. Word of mouth is difficult. Right now I rely on my neighbors daughter to play piano with my daughter once p/week. For introducing little ones to music I like www.sfskids.org and www.PianoNanny.com . Still looking for something interactive for writing music for little ones...

DEMI Sampling

I'm going to begin using a digital sampling technique that I invented in '86 called, DEMI sampling, to teach kids about creativity, sound, composition and some basic relativity theory. The technique takes a simple multi-sound sample and turns it into what sounds like a multi-track studio that you control in real time to create original music. Currently using Casio keyboards exclusively, and will start this program in the fall, unless I find a summer program somewhere.

Teaching what is "Good"

This may not be new and inventive, but I LOVE youtube to show them BAD quality of performance and GOOD quality of performance. Most of them do not know what a good quality singer sounds like! They hear the horrible shout-singing and nasal sound of "popular" singers and think that is "good". Don't get me wrong, there are some good quality singers out there in teh professional world, but there are some really bad ones! I have a blog where I address a lot of observations in my weekly blog. Come join in! http://voicesinginglessons.com/?p=3
