Beth's Music Notes: America the Beautiful
Kodaly and Orff Music Teacher's blog-All about the new dance craze: Gangnam Style
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!
Beth's Music Notes: recordersAND many resources. . . I think I've pinned this blog but I MUST remember to refer back to it. VERY informative.
Really great Music class website I stumbled across. She's got so many great ideas for decorating her music class that I'm so excited to try!
Mrs. King's Music Room: SMARTBoard is HERE!!!!
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.
