If you're anything like I was before I became confident with technology, you're probably overwhelmed by...

...All the tools and possibilities to explore


...How to implement technology when you don’t have access to much

Imagine if…


...instead of feeling overwhelmed by all the technology choices, you knew exactly which tech tools you wanted to use with students, with a clear purpose for each.

...you had a clear vision for how students could use tech tools in your music lessons, to improve their engagement and understanding (even if you have very little technology in your room!)

...you could create sub plans that actually keep students “on track,” instead of feeling they are throw-away lessons, by utilizing simple techniques and tools to create your own video and audio.

...you could lessen your stress by using technology to your advantage (even if you don’t think you have any time left in your busy music teacher life)


All of this is possible, with the Tech for Music Teachers Course!
