Google Calendar is one of my most frequently-used tech tools. Do you want to learn some tips for using calendar more efficiently and effectively? In the first podcast episode for our Productivity themed month, I share some of the Google Calendar shortcuts and hidden features that you might not have yet discovered.
- Ninja shortcuts for navigating Google calendar
- Why having multiple calendars is awesome
- Tips for adding events to your calendar
- How to let people self-schedule appointments in your Google Calendar within a specific block of time

To quickly move around your calendar, try the following:
- Switch between day/week/month using the shortcuts d, w and m
- Jump to today by pressing t
- Jump to a specific date by pressing g (type the date in the box that opens)
- Use mini calendar on left to select a series of days. Click and drag your mouse over the date range and Google Calendar will jump to that time

Looking for More Resources for Music Teachers?
Hello! I’m Katie Wardrobe – an Australian music technology trainer and consultant with a passion for helping music teachers through my business Midnight Music.
I’m a qualified teacher but no, I don’t currently teach in a school. I help teachers through my online professional development space – the Midnight Music Community – where there are tutorial videos, courses, links and downloadable resources.
I like to focus on easy ways to incorporate technology into what you are already doing in your music curriculum through a range of creative projects. I also run live workshops and have presented at countless conferences and other music education events.
If you want simple, effective ideas for using technology in music education, I would LOVE to help you inside the Midnight Music Community.
