Music Education Blogs
Lynn Kleiners Music Box - Lynn Kleiners blog - Using Orff Instruments for the First Time, Lesson Plans.....I love her.
Another great Elementary music resource. Organized by grade level.
Emily's Music Blog - combines Orff and Kodaly - - great article on using popular music in upper elementary but still following the Kodaly format. The idea TOTALLY makes sense!
Link to Martin Luther King Jr - A Tribute in Music Class: A student from Brooklyn, NY used video clips of the speech and ran them through auto-tune. Auto-tune is a technology that alters voices to be more in-tune. It was originally designed for singers, but this students used it to create a song from a speech. WOW.
