I wanted to post this YouTube video and share this great music. It's from "The Piano Guys" and they are fantastic. I know there is no technology in this, but..........
Wow, that is beautiful, intense, and soaring. I'm going to add them to my play list.
Here's a reprise of a music/technology video which I may have first seen her on the engage site:
There are a series of musical scores set to bar graphs. Here is one exampe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVoJoHsjLmE
Eric, thanks for the link. One of the activities I did while teaching high school music theory was to use an oscilloscope to show the kids what the note(s) they were hearing actually looked like. For the visual learner, this made a great deal of difference for them. Using this idea, your link is a visual representation of what a fugue looks like. That is very cool.
Eric, I was a high school and middle school band director for twenty-two years. While in the high school, I also taught Psychology, Music Theory, and Music History. After leaving the high school, I taught grades K-6 for the next thirteen years. There I taught, music, band, orchestra, choir, and technology. I was also an adjunct at Indiana University for nine years and taught Music Appreciation, The History of Rock and Roll, and Music Methods for the Elementary Classroom.
