Hello from beautiful Laos!
So, I’ve just gotten back from a conference (EARCOS) at the International School of Manila with a bunch of Arts and PE teachers AND I’ve signed up for a course on COURSERA through the Sydney Conservatorium. Let’s see how much I can reinvigorate my classroom practice by the end of the school year!!
So if you’re looking for some connections for yourself as a music teacher can I recommend that you…
- click on and sign up for Music Education in the 21st century
- go and see what Doug Goodkin is up to and use some Orff skills in your classroom
- go and read more about what @ethanhein , @alexruthmann and @JamesHumbers are up to on twitter, not to mention me – @alisonmusicblog
- and be inspired by Christopher Bill’s trombone arrangements (Happy and Uptown Funk) and loops on youtube.
If this is your first time at my site, I haven’t updated this place in forever, so bear with me while I get my online presence back in some kind of order! In the meantime, why not listen to me and my husband play through a tiny portion of “Girl Put Your Records On” by Corinne Bailey Rae?
I would put up one of my soundcloud files of an old arrangement, but internet in Laos in the heat is notoriously awful, and it’s taken me around 2 hours to get this far with with this post!!
