Friday Round Up

by David Birrow Birrow.David@MacPhail.org

Happy Winter Break...I mean Spring Break...I mean did Summer get canceled this year? While we wait to find out, here is some interesting stuff from the interwebs.

  • BBC article about the guy who selects trees for violins
  • FreeMusicEd.org is a great resource with a lot of useful materials including rhythm cards, worksheets, and a lot more including podcasts.  You could easily put together a bunch of sub plans with this stuff

These two thanks to Jeanie Brindley-Barnett:

  • "Jeanne Bayer, who teaches with MacPhail Music for Life™ sent me this video link. It's the way I'd like to grow old, doing the quickstep."
  • "This came from the Smithsonian via Science Magazine. A fascinating study from McGill which is very similar to what Roger Dumas is doing at Veteran's Hospital here."
