App of the Week: Beat Sneak Bandit

Thanks to one of the teachers in the Music Teacher’s Group on Facebook, I learned about this great music game! Wonderful for working on rhythm without even realizing it! Available on iTunes. I used it with my rising 6th graders in Music Camp this week (all boys) and they loved it!!!

Pinterest Idea Of The Week: Twitter Board

While browsing  Pinterest this morning, I found an amazing idea that I can’t wait to use in my studio this week!  The Twitter Board is a place where students can write “tweets” about something they learned during their lesson or something that inspired them during the lesson. This reinforces the learning and when other students read it, they learn as well. How cool is that?

How Do You Use Facebook For Your Studio?

Facebook pages, timelines, and status updates are all the rage these days. So, I recently set up a Facebook Page for my music studio. You can see it at Facebook is such a powerful tool, but as I’ve been discovering since I set up the studio page, it can be a bit overwhelming because there is so much you can do with it. So far I’ve been able to upload pictures and videos from recent events and have even managed to get and give a few likes thanks to many of you who read this blog. By the way, if you haven’t yet added a like to my page, I’d be honored if you’d like my page before you leave!

Do you use Facebook for your studio / business? If so, what do you use it for – promotion, staying connected to clients / parents? Please share your thoughts in a comment below.
