I wanted to thank you for joining my blog. It's great to find other Kodaly educators (I feel we are a small percentage). I saw you have manipulatives and SMARTboard files on your site and was wondering how you set it up to sell manipulatives.
I currently teach at a Catholic School in Lexington, KY and am very interested in making items available as you have done.

Have a great day - I'll be adding a link on my blog to your blog/website as well

I found your blog through pinterest - great ideas! I downloaded the Smartboard Star Spangled Banner activity, but the timer doesn't work when I click on it. Any tips or ideas what I may be doing wrong?

Thanks Debbie! Yes, I have also recently had trouble with the "rockets red glare" timer on that SMART Board file. I updated to SMART Board Notebook11 this summer and when I started up my Star Spangled Banner file, the timer would not start. I think it has to do with the new version. I suggest replacing that timer with another from the gallery. (Unfortunately those timers are not nearly as exciting.)

I am very impressed with your website. I was wanting to try one of your free smartboard downloads. I have a Macbook and I am having trouble downloading the Star Spangled Banner one. Would you know why or what I need to do? We are studying this song and thought your smart lesson was great.

What a wonderful website! I would love to purchase your products for my classroom, but I use a Promethean Board, not a Smartboard. Any chance you'll ever make your lessons Promethean (Active-Inspire) compatible? Thanks!

I found your website from your article in the Kodaly Envoy magazine. This is my first year teaching and I am working with a SMART Board for the first time, so I am VERY thankful that I came across your article on SMART Board Assessment. Assessing is where I feel I am struggling and always looking for fun ways to assess. I teach 3rd-5th grade and try to find ways to keep things fun, but not make the activities too childish or too advanced. I noticed you said you use Gradekeeper, so I was looking into it. Is this something you use just for you or does your school use it as well? I don't feel I have a convenient way of tracking grades and this sounded like it works well - having everything in one place.

Love your site! I was having trouble with the quarter rest and Mama Buy Me a Chiney Doll downloads - Mama is coming in a folder with all of the "pieces" rather than a SB file, and the other one says the destination cannot be created? I was very excited to find this, as I just started Mama with my 4th graders to prepare ti-tiki!

I saw you reference Kodaly Approach Book 4 on Kodaly Corner. WHERE can I get this? I have looked high & low, but cannot find any other info, besides in a commemorative publication of her life (after she passed away). Can you direct me? Thanks!

Hi Elsa, I'm sorry to have taken a while to respond. I can't track down Book 4 for purchase. Dr Kathy Hickey of University of Redlands would be someone to ask. Here is some info on Dr. Hickey: http://www.redlands.edu/academics/school-of-music/kathy-hickey.aspx#.Uxye9twYImw

Dear Tanya,

I was doing some research on Music Teaching related web pages, and came across your web page at:

http://tanyaelementarymusic.blogspot.com/2015/10/favorite-website-every-noise-at-once.html


I see very good information on that page, but I noticed that your link to the following site returns an error:

http://everynoise.com/engenremap.html.


Maybe the site is down, or the post has been removed. I just thought to let you know about it.


I'd also like to take the opportunity to ask your opinion about a Christmas Performance Guide I wrote recently for my audience on virtualsheetmusic.com:

http://www.virtualsheetmusic.com/guides/christmas/


Please, let me know your thoughts about it, I really value your opinion.

Also, if you are interested, I'd be glad to open you a free account on our website to try and explore it.

Either way, thanks for what you have done over there, I enjoyed reading it!


My best regards,
