Music notation is the representation of sound with symbols, from basic notations for pitch, duration, and timing, to more advanced descriptions of expression, timbre, and even special effects.
Research Songsmith: Teachers' Corner Songsmith is a great way to encourage students to be creative: many music teachers know that sometimes just helping kids “find their spark” is the hardest part of stimulating musical creativity. Furthermore, Songsmith can help you teach musical concepts that are sometimes difficult, particularly how chords are used in pop music and how melodies and chords fit together. Using tools like Songsmith to explore these concepts can help connect what students are learning in music class to the music they listen to at home, whether they’re in third grade or in high school.
CTA Classroom: Using Auxes, Groups, VCAs & Matrixes Pt. 4 — ChurchTechArts I’ve also created a single band VCA in the past that controlled all instrument and vocal inputs. I didn’t use it for mixing, but for taking the entire band out in one button press (on that desk, a VCA mute muted all the channels, including monitors). I still had my individual VCAs as well, and I did some mixing on them. Any time you want to control a group of inputs as a whole, a VCA is a great way to go. Drums are a perfect example because once you get the various drum mic's dialed in and sounding like a kit, you typically want to raise and lower the level of the drums, not the toms and hat (well sometimes you do…).
Learning and Loving Music Theory Kelvin, You actually caught a mistake on the roman numerals! Thanks, I’ll have to fix that. The first and last chords of the progression are not 7th chords.

CTA Classroom: Using Auxes, Groups, VCAs & Matrixes Pt. 3 — ChurchTechArts Think of each row of aux controls as another row of faders, but instead of moving up and and down, they rotate. By adjusting the levels of each of your channels in an aux mix, you build that mix for a monitor. At least that’s one use. Free Music Theory Worksheets!

11 Ideas for Music Lessons on your Interactive Whiteboard I’ve been asked several times recently on Twitter to recommend ideas for Music lessons that involve the interactive whiteboard. So here are 10 free resources, and one excellent paid-for resource, that will help you make music on your interactive whiteboard. More can be found on my delicious list. MoodStream Moodstream is a really interesting tool. It combines images (from Getty Images) and audio tracks to suit your mood. CTA Classroom: Defining Auxes, Groups, VCAs & Matrixes Pt. 2 — ChurchTechArts VCA is an abbreviation for Voltage Controlled Amplifier. Without getting super-technical, think of a VCA as a remote control for your fader. That might not seem very useful at first, considering you already have the fader right there. Where it gets fun is that you can assign multiple channels to a VCA, and you can assign a channel to multiple VCAs. More on that later. Here’s how a VCA works (at least functionally—look it up if you want to know how they work electrically): Let’s say you have your lead vocal—channel 1—assigned to VCA 1.
Why the circle of fourths is so important when learning major scales Playing your major scales should be a part of your daily practice regimen. However, practicing them in a “circle of fourths” or “circle of fifths” pattern is even better. Let’s focus more on circle of fourths. If you type “circle of fourths” or “circle of fifths” in google, you can actually find a host of other examples. Notice that the keys go from: C >>> F >>> Bb >>> Eb and so forth.
