Portable Audio Recorder:


A portable audio recorder is a great tool to use to record rehearsals and practice sessions. Play back recordings of rehearsal so students can hear things they need to work on. This is a great simple tool to use to get the most out of rehearsal.


Suggested Products:

Zoom h1

Zoom h2n

Bluetooth Audio Receiver:

A Bluetooth audio receiver can be used wtih an existing audio system. Just sink your bluetooth device (Ipod, smartphone, or tablet) to the receiver. This will allow you to play music anywhere in your classroom. No more walking over to the stereo or long cords for students to trip over. Great for general music teachers that move around their room or a conductor that does not want to leave the podium.

Noteflight - Online Music Notation Software:


Noteflight is the best way to create, store, listen to, print, search and share notated music online. If you are a composer, you can use Noteflight to author and manage your compositions. If you are a performer, you can use Noteflight to create and share sheet music that you like to play. If you're a teacher or a student, you can use Noteflight to communicate and collaborate in learning music. Can be used in school computer labs or great for one to one school. Students can also use at home.



DropBox-Oneline Sharing Program:


DropBox is a great way to share files with your students that are too large to email. Great for sharing rehearsal recordings with your students



Drum Machine:


A drum machine is a great way to get your students practicing with good time. Many students do not like the practicing with the boring sound of a metronome. A drum machine gives students options found on higher end metronomes, but in an affordable matter.
