Create your own teaching resources with Christopher Russell part 1

Listen to the episode here (or on your favourite podcast app):

This is part one of two episodes in which I speak to middle school choir director Christopher Russell from Oltman Middle School in Minnesota. Chris is a great example of a traditional-style music teacher who uses technology to support his program.  Over the years he has utilised technology to increase his productivity and assist the smooth running of his program.

He’s an expert at creating music notation files and rehearsal tracks for his students and lately one of the most effective ways he has been using technology is to create ukulele play-along videos using a handful of apps on his iPad.
