Leigh Kallestad and Giovanna Cruz are both experienced music educators. As part of MakeMusic’s Education Services team, they recently led a webinar panel discussion, along with guests Dr. Glenn Pohland, professor at Loras College, IA and Mike Gibson, Director of Bands at Ridgeview Middle School, in Sandy Springs, GA.
Both Glenn and Mike have currently switched from the classic SmartMusic to the new web-based SmartMusic. As part of the discussion, they described their experience in using the new SmartMusic in the classroom and shared tips to help you get the most out of it in your music program.
Additional topics discussed include using SmartMusic:
- To prepare students for Honor Band
- In methods classes at the college level, and
- To audition students
The panel also shared strategies for implementing the use of this technology with students at the middle school level.
