  18. 18. Teach the Teacher July
  19. 19. Teach the Teacher July Music Ace Maestro Great theory learning program available for purchase as 1 or 2 separate programs or as 1 all-inclusive teacher’s addition.
  20. 20. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Theory Games </li></ul><ul><li>Theory learning program </li></ul><ul><li>that corresponds with the </li></ul><ul><li>Alfred Piano method. Also </li></ul><ul><li>works well for specific </li></ul><ul><li>assignments. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Interactive Music </li></ul><ul><li>Great for younger learners. </li></ul><ul><li>Creative characters take them </li></ul><ul><li>through games and activities </li></ul><ul><li>centered around classic </li></ul><ul><li>compositions. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Piano Wizard </li></ul><ul><li>A program that teaches students how to play the piano by matching colors and rhythms and eventually progresses to full Grand Staff Music Reading. Great for students who don’t normally play the piano as </li></ul><ul><li>their main instrument as well </li></ul><ul><li>as current piano students. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Groovy </li></ul><ul><li>Students use shapes and pictures </li></ul><ul><li>to compose songs. They can also </li></ul><ul><li>do ear training activities as well as </li></ul><ul><li>view their composition in full musical </li></ul><ul><li>score. Great for young and old and </li></ul><ul><li>a favorite among all of my students. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Auralia </li></ul><ul><li>This is a more advanced program specifically used for beginning to advanced vocalists but can be used with any advanced instrumental student. A challenging ear-training program but very worth the cost. </li></ul>
  25. 25. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Ear Master Pro (as suggested by teachers on the web-call) </li></ul><ul><li>This is another program that was suggested </li></ul><ul><li>by teachers on the web-call. This </li></ul><ul><li>program includes over 400 lessons as </li></ul><ul><li>well as 200 jazz lessons. Also has the </li></ul><ul><li>capability of adding your own exercises. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Meet the Musicians </li></ul><ul><li>This is a great video series. It works well for small group or individualized sessions. I will split the video and have students watch the 2 acts across 2 separate lessons. I like it because it not only talks about a composers music but also gives students personal information that the students find relatable. </li></ul>
  27. 27. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>Musiclearningcommunity.com </li></ul><ul><li>This program requires an on-line subscription for teachers. Each teacher enrolls his/her students and they can access the program from home. I have used this as part of the lab time as well as at-home assignments. You can add fun competition to your studio by having students compete on one game for the week and then reward the highest scorer. </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>Musictheory.net (free program suggested by teachers on the web-call) </li></ul><ul><li>This program is available free </li></ul><ul><li>on line. It is also available </li></ul><ul><li>to be printed out. Several </li></ul><ul><li>Take-Lessons instructors </li></ul><ul><li>recommended this one. This would not be a good program for individualized work for non-readers but for anyone else I think that it would be a wonderful addition! </li></ul>
  29. 29. Teach the Teacher July <ul><li>What and Why of Technology </li></ul><ul><li>How I use technology </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Record information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Share information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lab time </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Technology tools I use </li></ul>
