I’m tuning by perfect fifths after tuning the A. If kids can’t turn peg, grandpa helps
Heather Blanco
01:07:20
Is there a specific brand of tuner that you have them purchase?

This is the tuner we use for the kids

That Joanna is talking about
Ron Kinard

I use a similar process with tuners. My first year kids start learning the tuners somewhere shortly before holiday break. I'm a fan, and agree that they absorb some ear training naturally in the process.

Soundcoreset is free app tuner for Iphone - FREE My students download it on day 1
Ron Kinard
01:12:13
Agree, Soundcorset is the go to free app - the metronome is easy to use. For a couple bucks Tonal energy is great - it has some features the kids enjoy.
Rachel Gonzales

Egg cartons work great for that “box”
Alexandra Jackson

Brian- is the document that will be published later? I would love to have a copy of this.
Brian Coatney
01:15:42
Yes. It should be released late next week. It’s a great document. In depth and research based. I will work to make sure it is on the TMEA Covid webpage.

Hey Rachel Gonzales! Good to see you!
Alexandra Jackson
01:16:23
Thank you! It definitely makes me feel more like this is going to be possible.

I had students construct a Box Instrument for one of their activities this past spring, and they went for it. I also went through the angle of constructing one even if they had their instrument and had them ‘gift’ it to a younger sibling (to peak their interest and keep them occupied). They used anything in their house as a substitute for some items. I think the Box Instrument is a great idea.

can you speak about technology for ensembles to play together

ditto
Michael Stringer
01:20:37
That is the next topic up :)
Larisa Bairamova

Smart music; Sight-reading factory the interactive technology I use Is there anything better out there ?
Mark Hillegass Jr
01:22:32
Noteflight - teach theory through composition. Soundtrap has an educational account. Breezin Thru Theory and Musictheory.net
Larisa Bairamova
01:23:03
great Thank you for sharing,
Mark Hillegass Jr
01:24:39
Noteflight will also be introducing SoundCheck for performance assessment and feedback.
Ana Portillo
01:24:42
The Soundtrap educational account is pricey. BandLab offers the same thing for free: edu.bandlab.com

teachers performing with video guide tracks … kids perform to your team as they record … but it's very labor intensive to put the end product together
Sally Kirk
01:30:51
WHere was Seth's video, Ron?

Fort Worth has not given us any decision on live performances at all.
Travis Patterson
01:35:40
could you post that link for video Mr. Stringer was talking about
beatrice stanley
01:35:43
would it be possible to perform while wearing a mask.

Also facing away from each other creates the environment for listening rather than watching for coordination
Alexandra Jackson
01:36:56
Thank you for doing this! This is so helpful to stave off anxiety about all the unknown. I appreciate all that TMEA does for us as teachers.
Sally Kirk
01:37:07
Agree. THank you!
Brian Coatney
01:37:14
Expensive, but you could also consider Plexiglas glass shields around the students
Ron Kinard
01:37:27
I think performing with masks could be ok for us - moreso than our band friends. But local guidelines, distancing etc will be a consideration when guidelines get locked.

Leticia Fuentes
01:38:15
Thank you!
Sandra Canales
01:38:16
Maybe use a clear shower curtain set up with the use of pvc pipes
Melanie Thomson
01:38:16
Thank you! It is good to hear people thinking of the same things that I am concerned about. I'm feeling positive about this next school year.

Rather than Facebook Live and YouTube, maybe StageIt could prevent copyright issues? They do not archive performances.

Virtual TODA is July 20-22
