At the urging of several friends, and a desire to provide some extra help for my students I have completed my first podcast at Wildvoice. The first podcast is a review/remediation session of cut-time and 6/8 rhythms that the middle school band has been working on during rehearsals and that are found in one of their selections for the Holiday Concert. It is simply titled “Mercer MS Band Rhythm Tutoring Session”. Though I consider myself a “techno-infant”, I am eager to use this in the future. There is a lot of upside to utilizing this technology to improve music education (please refer to a great article over at Mustech.net dealing with this very idea!) in our everyday instruction. It took me about 15-20 minutes tonight to record and post, and it was done while planning tomorrow’s rehearsals for the concert bands and wind ensemble. I welcome any critiques and suggestions from those who are a bit more advanced than yours truly. My thanks and appreciation to Dr. Joseph Pisano for his continual advice and encouragement!
