These videos demonstrates VERY clearly how the size of the string and it's tuning affect the size of the sound wave created.  Very cool!

Based on my previous post, I am not ashamed to admit that I was thrilled when I was able to help my students travel through a composition process that got them to where they could create work that looked like this.   However,...

When I was in college, I wish I had understood the value of an observation. Before I started teaching I had to spend hours and hours observing in a "live" school setting.  I was working toward my Bachelor of Music degree with...

I find that it is REALLY a very difficult help students to understand tempo, but to be able to use the tempo vocabulary when describing music.  My co-teacher and I tried something new this year.  We developed a listening less...

Melodysoup Video Wednesday! Robert Gupta - TED Talk
The keynote address at TMEA was absolutely stunning and beautiful and this is just a little bit of a taste of what was shared.... The TMEA talk was so much better and yet I have to share at least a little bit.

This was a tough year for my family.  Between December of 2013 to March 2014 my dad spent 120 consecutive days in the hospital.  Most of those days were in ICU.  I'm pleased to say that he is doing VERY well today, but it has...

For my friends who will notice..... First, a word about using "aide" rather than "aid".  Aid refers to inanimate objects usually in reference to first aid kits.  You can be an "aide" as in "presidential aide"  or "teacher's a...

Introduction
I am a Jesus follower who strives to live my life to His glory.  I teach kinder-5th grade music in an urban elementary school located in the Houston area.  I like to blog because I have lots of extra words, so writing is a great outlet.

I love books! I love book stores! I love being at bookstores with people who enjoy books but this Barnes and Noble has the most disgusting bathrooms ever. People who bring their children here for story time would be better off changing diapers on the sidewalk outside. You can't get near entire sections of the bookstore due to the bathroom "funk" radiating in waves from the bathroom area. The fumes literally make my eyes water. I spoke with a manager about the filth on the floor, the overflowing trashcans and obviously dirty toilets and he just smiled. It was clear he had no intention of taking action or asking an employee to clean. this bookstore is located in a fancy business district, there is no excuse for this level of poor facility care. Increase the frequency of your cleaning schedule or lose my business forever.
