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"
  • "I'm coming back to teaching after a break and everything has changed"
  • "The kids know more than I do!" 


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!

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

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, speak at more than 100 conferences, and travel around the world inspiring others to use technology in their music instruction to help further student success and a love of learning. 

It’s important for me to take the fear factor out of using technology in education. 

There is no such thing as a silly question.  

I’m here for you: to help you feel more confident in using these new tools and resources in the classroom and to help 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.

Here's what it looks like inside the Midnight Music Community

There are short and long training courses available on a range of topics with professional development certificates available for each.  

This is what it looks like in the Dashboard when you first login to the MMC. 

In the training section we have lessons on: free music webistes, iPads, GarageBand, Mixcraft, Sibelius, Soundtrap (coming soon), Abelton Live, Interactive Whiteboards, Pro Tools, Audacity, Acid Music Studio, STEAM, flipped classrooms, film scoring and more.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if I'm a beginner? And a technophobe??

Then you will be amongst friends :) The training courses assume no prior knowledge and everything is explained clearly, without "tech-speak" or jargon. I can guarantee that as soon as you join, you'll find activities and lessons that you can use in class the very next day.

I want the focus of my music lessons to be singing and playing, not sitting in front of a computer  

I totally agree! My philosophy is that the curriculum comes first and that technology is simply one tool that you an use to teach. That's why the majority of my training courses are project-based. For instance, if song-writing is the aim, you might start by playing known songs and creating cover versions. You could use your tech resources to record the cover songs and then students could compose their own original song in software like GarageBand, Mixcraft or Soundtrap. Technology should weave into the things you are already doing and should enhance an activity or help you teach it in a different way. The training inside the Midnight Music Community takes this approach.  

I have iPads/Chromebooks/Macs/PCs/BYOD - will the Midnight Music Community help me?  

Yes! There are lesson ideas and software training for all the different platforms. New materials are added regularly.  

I don't have time learn lots of new software and apps  

The training inside the Midnight Music Community "cuts to the chase". I've done the hard yards learning the software and apps and devising ways they can be used in music lessons. I love thinking of tech ideas that fit into all those activities that are a normal parts of music education - composing, singing, playing, literacy, history, listening and so on. As a member of the community you will learn just the necessary aspects of the technology to help you run your classes.  

Are the courses live? Is there a time limit on access to the training materials?  

The courses and training materials are all pre-recorded so you can do your professional learning at a time that suits you - morning, day, night, in your PJs - whatever you like! You can watch part of a video one day and come back the next day to watch the rest. You can also re-watch each one as many times as you like, so it's great if you need a refresher down the track. As a member you get access to ALL courses and materials for as long as your membership is current.  

Why on ongoing subscription?  

I tried one-off course payments when I first started running online courses back in 2012. It was ok, but there were a couple of problems. Firstly, teachers wanted ONGOING access to the course materials - longer than the 6 months I was able to grant them with the old setup. Secondly, some teachers also wanted to take 2, 3, 4 or sometimes 5 of my courses (I had 3 teachers do a total of 5 courses each and many other do 3 or 4 courses!) and the cost involved in paying for each one separately was mounting up.  

With the Midnight Music Community subscription plan, you choose: you can pay for access for as long as you need it and instead of being forced to select just one single course, you are able to access ALL the courses and resources at once. That way you can choose to study what is important to you at any given time.  

In the past, access to just ONE online course was around $200 and if you come along to one of my full-day workshops you’ll pay around $180-$300 per teacher. The annual cost of joining the Midnight Music Community for a FULL 12 MONTHS is less than $500 and if you need a more affordable option you can pay by the month. In addition, you get daily access to me - ask questions and share your frustrations and the I'll do my best to solve them for you.  

What are the payment options?  

There are two payment options. The annual membership is for music teachers that want to save some money by paying the full year up front (purchase order option available or you can pay via credit card). The ongoing monthly membership is for teachers who need a more affordable option (payment by credit card only). 

What happens if I decide to cancel my membership? 

While we would love all of our members to stick around forever, we do understand that can't always happen! If you do need to leave, you are able to cancel your membership very simply with just two clicks of your mouse.  

Do you offer a discount for multiple teachers from one school?  

Yes - a discounted rate is available for 3 or more teachers from one school.  

Will the price increase over time?  

Once you have joined the Midnight Music Community, you will lock in that membership rate for as long as you stay a continuous member. That means that even if the listed price on the website goes up, you will keep paying the same amount.
