School closure band resources, Mrs. Koski
I miss all of my students and making music together! I hope that everyone is well! I've put together a few resources for my band students to keep their playing and musical brains strong during our school closure. We are currently using Breezin Thru Theory and Smartmusic for our coursework in Canvas. All band students need accounts in both of these programs. Please contact me if you are having trouble signing up for either one.
Breezin Thru Theory will start with a review and then move on to new concepts. It records your progress and sends me the information about how many levels you have passed and the % of correct responses. It covers basic musical concepts such as note reading and rhythms.
Smartmusic allows me to make assignments in your band book or sheetmusic that you can record. It will send the recording to me so that I can hear how you are doing. Students are also allowed to record their assignments directly into Canvas OR play live for me during Zoom class or extra help sessions.
