"My never ending project is:
Ear training exercises & quizzes. Although designed for beginning
Strings players (all 3 clefs), it will be usable by vocal teachers also.
Students are presented w/a series of short written examples, which
they may hear as they view them. For each "question" the student
may take a practice quiz. The answer will elicit an auditory & a visual
response regarding accuracy. When ready, the student may take the
actual quiz, results of which will be sent to the teacher.

"I still intend to post my lesson plans on my website. There will be a
few links to sites that may pertain to the subject. If I have time, I
would still like to do a powerpoint presentation, but I am thinking that
there won't be enough time."

"My name is Sue Miller and I have been a teacher for many years. My
experiences includes vocal music -elementary through high school
-adaptive music, and several years as an ESL teacher in Japan. I
have also spent 8 years managing a records department in a
largelaw firm. I have recently returned to the states and am looking
forward to sharing the instruments,music,and cultureof the eastern
countries with America. My elementary children at KCK have become
more aware of other cultures through the music and arts of
Japan/China/Mexico/Africa/Russia and are expanding their
knowledge of the world and their place in it. This clacc will enable me
to expand my database of experiences as I am not a computer
person!! However, I realize the need for the computer in my life as
well as my students. My hope is to create a piano lab . Another way to
incorporate my expertise into public school teaching. although I am
looking forward to this class my progress will be slow. Sue"

"This is my second time through this class. I was unable to use my website as often or as much
as I liked last school year because of scheduling issues with the laptops and with technology
"instruction" at my school. I am hoping to resolve those issues for the upcoming school year.

This summer I would like to add at least two more national standards units to my website
(possibly lessons on relating music to history and culture, vocal health, recorder, or arts

I will be starting my fifth year of teaching elementary music.

i must go now because they are rushing me"

School in Kansas City, Kansas. I will begin my seventh year when
school resumes. I am very proud of what has been transpiring with
the Vocal Music department as my large mixed group has received 3
one ratings within the las 4 years. Further, several students have
been successful with solos and small groups. We do take one big
trip a year. Nice to meet you. We can talk more in person."

"I was married last October, so I am still in the process of getting my
name changed. I've filled out all of the needed paperwork, but
Central Office still uses my maiden name.

Kansas. I am beginning my fourth year there as the accompanist
and my second year as the Student Coucil Advisor. Through this
class I am hoping to enhance my ability to assist the vocal music
instructor in his teaching in the classroom. However I am hoping to

performance success in singing. On the other side of the spectrum I
am excited to learn how to build a web page and I am hoping to lead
my student council in building a web page for Washington High

My name is Mary. This is my second year with "IT"S MUSIC". But it
doesn't mean that I am a computer wiz. I need to have a second
course just to make sure I can still do it. All the additions to the
notebook are very helpful. Thanks for listening to us.
