Hi Everyone, let’s hope Sammy Branch doesn’t turn on his video. No one wants to see that

David, how do you have a virtual concert?
Deborah Obrien
22:15
Did you record and put the songs together for a concert?
Kimberly Shimpo
24:27
We have been told teachers will not have to teach both in persona and online. Therefore, "orchestra" will not likely be offered. Is anyone else struggling with this? Ideas for how to ensure we don't punish those kids who would prefer to stay home.
Todd Berridge
25:32
Thank you David!
Teresa Nguyen
29:01
Chris, can you do this on an iPad?
Matthew Porter
31:22
Final Cut Pro is the Mac application
Teresa Nguyen
32:10
Thanks Matthew

LumaFusion is a pretty powerful video editing software for iPad
Matthew Porter
33:58
DaVinci Resolve is free editing software that works great as well.
Richard Frazier
36:46
OBS (Open Broadcasting Software) Cross platform. Editing and streaming.
David DeVoto

This was one of our pieces - ugh it took forever

Would someone who has the document Mr. Needham created be willing to share with everyone?
Rodrigo Pessoa de Almeida
37:12
Any suggestion for video editing software for free or low cost? For windows
Michael Stringer
37:35
I have asked him for it and will post with the video of this meeting
Richard Frazier
37:35
OBS is free.
Nicholas Hamilton
37:49
Thank you, Michael
Samuel Branch

40 hours sounds daunting - but if you’re lucky enough to have a well funded booster club, we hired out our virtual performance for $350. Just sent him recordings from the kids and he put it together for us, quick.
Teresa Matchett
39:20
Do you have suggestions for programs where the kids are economically disadvantaged? I have a significant amount of kids with no access to technology other than an inexpensive cell phone or some without a cell phone at all.
Samuel Branch
39:24
Just another option.
Matthew Porter
40:21
Fantastic idea Brian!
Rodrigo Pessoa de Almeida
40:33
Thanks, Michael!!
Ellen Townley
40:37
Preach it Brian!
Nicholas Hamilton
41:08
Second what Teresa said
Todd Berridge
41:44
Thanks Brian!
Chris Frank
42:26
Check with your school district, which has many economically disadvantages students. Ours had a Chromebook checkout program to get students without access.
Brian Coatney
43:35
We purchased 10 of these cameras and let the students record at home and give us the cameras back. https://www.youngexplorers.com/itemdy00.aspx?T1=Y151007&srccode=NXCYC6&utm_source=google&utm_medium=comparison&utm_campaign=datafeed&source=pla&gclid=CjwKCAjwi_b3BRAGEiwAemPNU3hqTTKgV7W3ixN6TBzv6HWbtrynV3V6ROE0CpPGoZa5NL7cBW5jnxoCn2UQAvD_BwE
Kimberly Shimpo
44:08
Chrome books will record using screencasity extension.
Brian Coatney
44:09
I-twist flip camera. You can find some for $35
Brian Coatney
44:45
They require a SD card but no internet access
Diane Harper
45:42
Fort Worth purchased Hot Spots and had technology pickup also and also offered packets but success with this was mixed at best.
Diane Harper
46:30
Yes!
Gary Keller
48:00
We put in our hard copy packets for students to call our school phones and leave their playing assignments as voicemails.
Gary Keller

Yes! We reached out to several students who did not have internet access during the shutdown about spectrum free internet for students!
Melissa Livings
51:11
We have done something similar at Pearce (what Hunter is talking about). It works great but you just need breakout rooms. I'm not sure how it would work with other groups meeting at the same times. Practice rooms won't work because they are too small usually.
Michael Stringer
52:03
Please keep sharing ideas on the google doc: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DNm9zsvZL3trfyOhXwoTEPLVOVCVOi83HcubuLsQJ9k/edit?usp=sharing
Deborah Obrien
55:02
I am taking a class on the professional zoom and it has breakout rooms.
Samuel Branch
01:05:20
You can slow down the playback speed without affecting the intonation of the track, so they can play along at their tempo.
Danielle Prontka
01:07:44
You can have your upper level kids create these videos for your lower level students as well.
Deborah Obrien
01:09:09
Jamie did you have any students whose parents would not let them come and pick up their instruments? If so, what did you do with them?
Jean-Philippe Rominger
01:09:20
very impressive, Jamie
Samuel Branch
01:10:00
Seems like a lot of computer work, but once you create the first google doc, you reuse it and just copy and paste the content.
Ellen Townley
01:13:13
Thank you, Jamie!
Adriana Medina
01:13:16
Thank you!
Diane Harper
01:13:42

Brett Nelsen
01:23:13
Thanks for the suggestions everyone. These are all great. If you are using CANVAS, could you export a lesson to the COMMONS, please?
Emmanuel Peralta-Coraza
01:23:25
^^^^^^ yes!
Samuel Branch
01:23:49
@Brett, I’ll look at our lessons and export what I can.
David DeVoto
01:24:24
Here's the class I showed at the beginning - hopefully you can see the lessons in Modules

I would also love to do some research on the cost of leaving those live performance videos up. Royalties, etc.
Matthew Porter
01:26:44
Thx David
Danielle Prontka
01:26:59
Matt - ASCAP is overwhelmed right now, but I am looking into that for TODA info
Danielle Prontka
01:27:23
They did give me a name so I can discuss about this
Matthew Porter
01:27:35
Glad to know. Perhaps that could be a part of our next conversation in this forum
ADRIA DUNN
01:27:59
Eraser dust is a place in El Paso.
Victoria Lien
01:28:14
D'Addario stickers for specific instruments?
ADRIA DUNN
01:28:22
Yes, TMEA can create one.
Danielle Prontka
01:28:41
we use painters tape with different colors..not as cool but something
Neal Springer
01:29:09
^^^ same
Jennifer Clark
01:29:16
Yes, D’Addario’s stickers are great! They are round and large enough to use for that.
Emmanuel Peralta-Coraza
01:29:24
They make colored carpet circles for elementary schools….? https://www.amazon.com/Markers-Classroom-Preschool-Kindergarten-Teachers/dp/B07Y2Q5BPR/ref=sr_1_28?dchild=1&keywords=floor+spots+music&qid=1593730458&sr=8-28
Deborah Obrien
01:29:29
So All Region will be recorded now?
Desiree Overree
01:29:35
Hey @Kay Vanlandingham, did you have leftover "IT STARTS WITH MUSIC" stickers?
Gary Keller
01:30:18
I received a message today from my DFA that UIL has recommended summer activities be suspended until July 13th and possibly beyond. We have been told to cancel.
Jennifer Clark
01:30:55
Yes, will we have a session to review how we will address Region recordings?
Kay Vanlandingham
01:31:00
Sorry, no more It Starts With Music stickers. :(
Ricky Pringle
01:31:50
I am thinking about moving my classes to the cafeteria
Sandra Canales
01:32:05

Just wanted to add that the majority of the sessions in the TODA Virtual Convention will have a moderated chat during the session. So there is an interactive component. Very exciting!
Holly Burton
01:38:09
Thank you Michael!
Rodrigo Pessoa de Almeida
01:38:55
Can someone share a link to get D’Addario’s stickers?
