Katie Wardrobe – a music technology trainer and consultant with a passion for helping music teachers – started running music technology workshops for teachers because there was very little information specifically about how to use tech in a music education setting.
Yes, you can easily read the software manual or take a general online course on the basics of a software program but what exactly should you do with your students in the music classroom? And where were the examples for studio instrumental teachers or band directors? What sort of projects work well with GarageBand or Mixcraft or iPads or Sibelius and how can you ensure your IWB is used effectively in class and not just to show Youtube videos?
When Katie didn’t find those answers readily, she set out to create her own solutions and share them through training sessions and courses.
There are four things you can do:
- attend an upcoming face-to-face workshop
- schedule a workshop for staff at your school or in your district
- join the Midnight Music community for instant access to 12 online courses and other resources
- take a look at the done-for-you iPad lesson resources
