Music Theory Fun Sheets were almost two years in the making – from when we first came up with the first concept for module one, through to the four modules that are currently available.
When we were about ready to release them I wanted to come up with a bonus item that would be able to really help music teachers.
My husband and I thought long and hard about what would be really valuable to teachers, when he said to me…
“What is useful are those “little gem” ideas that you learn along the way. Things like a tuning tip that you might learn from watching an experienced band director, or a classroom management strategy that you might learn from watching one of your mentors when doing your teacher training. These “little gem” ideas are worth far more to a teachers sanity than anything else!”
That is why we came up with the concept of an e-book which was drawn from the collective experience of every music teacher we can contact.
We decided to run a little competition to get some content for the book by sending out an email to our Fun Music Company mailing lists, inviting contributions. We decided we would give a little prize, and a copy of the completed ebook to all the contributors.
We were expecting a handful of responses, but were totally overwhelmed with the response. There was over 100 entries, which I personally edited and chose 40 to be included.
In 40 Lifesavers you’ll find ideas like:
"40 Lifesavers for the music teacher regularly sells on its own for $9.95 from this website, and it is included in the Music Theory Fun Sheets package of four modules.
