the midnight music community

An online community where music tech professional development, lesson ideas, and accountability come together.

do any of these sound familiar?

  • "I've always been hopeless with technology - everything always goes wrong!"
  • "I can't keep up... technology changes too quickly"
  • "The kids know more than I do!"
  • "I'm coming back to teaching after a break and everything has changed."

Trust me, you're not alone!

Almost EVERY teacher has felt frustrated with technology at one time or another whether it's new software or iPads, Chromebooks and laptops.

you don't want to waste time struggling with technology but you DO want to keep up.

You only have so many hours in the day and it's hard to find the time (and energy) to stay on top of it!

Music teachers I've worked with over the years just want the same thing: 

  • Music software explained simply, with NO tech-speak
  • Practical and innovative lesson ideas for using music tech
  • Help navigating software, app and device choices (it can be overwhelming, right?!)

Many music teachers have told me they are stuck and don't know where to turn for help.

But what if I told you:

  • You could easily learn up-to-date software and technology that would change the way you teach your classes
  • You could take online music tech courses at a time that suits you
  • And you could earn professional development certificates while you do it
  • PLUS save valuable time by training at your own pace when it's convenient for you!

what if you could...

save time & cut to the chase!

Avoid sifting through countless Youtube videos and online tutorials to find the information you need.

This all-in-one membership community and program will save you time by cutting to the chase. Training is designed especially for music educators working with students.

access innovative lesson ideas

In addition to online music tech training courses, the Midnight Music Community includes innovative teaching ideas, lesson plans and other resources that help you incorporate technology into your classes.

learn at your own pace

All of the courses and training materials are available ALL of the time. Learn at your own pace, at a time that suits you - whenever and wherever you'd like.

Explanations are in plain English (no "tech-speak!) and no prior knowledge is assumed.

Does this sound like it could make a difference in your classroom?

Transforming the Blues

Take the standard blues progression, transform it into a non-blues style and improvise a solo using one, two or many notes!

"This is exactly what I need right now."

“You have done a fabulous job setting up something that is clean and easy to navigate and as soon as I logged in I could tell that you "got it". You know what we are hoping to get out of this community. Since I have so many current technology goals this is EXACTLY what I need right now and I am grateful to dive in with the content.”

"I have learned many shortcuts that I never knew existed. Even my pupils were unaware of most of them!"

"The Music Teachers’ Guide to Garageband is absolutely brilliant. Katie takes you through many topics in a step-by-step format. I have learned many shortcuts that I never knew existed. Even my pupils were unaware of most of them!

Like all Katie’s training, nothing is left unturned. It is always my go-to resource for anything involving music tech and, if I cannot find the answer myself, I know Katie and her team are only an email away. I am a subscriber to lots of communities but, I can honestly say, this is my favourite. Worth every penny (as we say in the UK!). Long may it continue."

what music teachers are saying

Hello! I'm Katie Wardrobe.

Join me inside the Midnight Music Community and I'll show you how you can effectively integrate technology into your current music curriculum.

I have had the pleasure of training thousands of teachers, speaking at more than 100 conferences, and travelling around the world to inspire others to use technology in their music classrooms.  

My biggest aim is to take the fear factor out of using technology in music education. I like to simplify technology and show how you can use it in your current curriculum.

There is no such thing as a silly question!

I’m here for you: I'll help you feel more confident in using tech resources in the classroom and make sure you have a place where you can get easy-to-understand answers when things don’t go as planned.

The Midnight Music Community was created for caring teachers who want to help their students succeed. It was was created for you.
