I think it would be really cool if you were to film a class and show how this works. Thanks! Reply senorstadel on September 1, 2013 at 5:05 am I can’t believe I never commented on this post. A huge goal of mine this year is to incorporate more music in the class. Especially since I’ll have my kids for about 88 minutes. Anywhere from beginning to end, and transitions, I’ve found music (cheesy or pop culture) definitely has a solid impact on students (and me). I’m going to try play guitar as well for certain class parts. This post surely was helpful and I learned a new little trick: shortening a song within iTunes. And here I was using Garageband… Great post man! Reply Cathy Yenca on July 30, 2013 at 6:04 am Kool & the Gang’s “Celebration” is always playing when students walk into my classroom on the day of a test (our “Celebration of Learning” – so cheesy but 8th graders still eat it up! If I forget to have the song playing, I hear about it!) I have lots of music options in the app “Sand Timer” – kids don’t know what the music is going to be, so that not-knowing has become part of the novelty. Thanks for sharing all the specifics of how you use music cues – I think I will be broadening my repertoire this year!
