E-learning resources is one site that every music teacher should visit. Allan Melville and Miranda Myers put together this fantastic online resource for use in schools, which has a whole stack of material for music classroom use, with more being added regularly. Here’s their content snapshot:
You get a teacher’s login password, and all your students get a student password (the same one for the whole school). With that, both you and your students can have access to the site 24 hours a day, from home or school. One yearly subscription fee covers the whole shebang. There’s a 7-day trial, but they’re not stingy: if you don’t get a chance to have a look in that time, they’re happy to extend it.
I’ve spoken to Allan on a few occasions about this site. He’s absolutely lovely and can’t do enough to help. Something I haven’t had the chance to do yet (but I will soon Allan, I promise!) is sit down with him so he can take me through all their new updates. Once he’s done that, he can give me a certificate for professional development to add to my ongoing registration requirements. How cool is that?
I’ve used this site for teaching analysis, setting homework, and exam preparation. I haven’t yet used it nearly as much as I would like, but with our new computer resources which have just arrived at my school, that will be changing very soon. Go check this one out. It’s very well worth it. To get there, click on the banner below:
