What is useful to a music teacher?… here is what one person told us:
“What are 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 e-book to all the contributors.
We were expecting a handful of responses, but were totally overwhelmed with the response. There was over 100 entries which we trimmed down to 40 which we personally edited and added an introduction to each one.
