just finished series 1 of Dr. Who (2005). Great show. Going to miss Chris Eccleston as the Doctor. #geek
@heistes I’ve performed Ad.&All - & it’s a BEAST! but very fun to play too. Just basics - long tones, lip slurs, scales, hours o’practice!
@teaching_music ’58 School admins…’ - sounds like the start to a joke… ;)
@thomasjwest also works in Chrome: right click and select ‘Inspect Element’
@justine_robin that’s during my prep. I’d love to help out.
@MmeVeilleux no comparison. Gmail is far superior!
See you all in the real world (i.e. Twitter) #musedchat
OneI haven’t seen is actually having your own website to keep students/parents/community informed & direct to other resources #musedchat
Greetings MusEd’ers. Just got home from CG practice. Really looking forward to bookmarking some great sites today! :D #musedchat

The band is playing “Truth or Dario” in the stands. #fb
Week 2 of school coming to a close. Pep Band tonight. Jazz Band starts up Monday. #fb
@mmrankin Thanks, Melanie. Yes, I’ll be there tomorrow for jazz auditions.
Band Parent Meeting this evening. Going over calendar, volunteering, fundraising, website, twitter, tour, um… and everything else!
@musicgeekchic I always have a lot of vocal strain at the beginning of the school year - simply because I don’t talk during the summer!
hoping that there will be A/C at Del Campo HS tonight for Symphonic Winds. 106F earlier today…
In Auburn for tech training. Unfortunately missing Symphonic Band rehearsal. #notmusic
@jguarr congrats on the new gig!
@LindsayMorelli FYI the filter at my school blocks your blog & says lindsaymorelli.com is classified as “music”. Well duh! (I overrode it!)

I think it’s important to set the tone for the year and to get the kids excited about making music. #musedchat
I meet prior the year starting with the juniors/seniors and go over the bands mission/vision/goals. Then they model behavior, etc #musedchat
wow, I so need to move out of Cali (jk if my students are tracking this!) #musedchat
If I hadn’t been rehearsing the week prior, I would have made sure to have music going, though. #musedchat
We had a camp right before school started. 1st day of class we were in the comp lab going over website/handbook/smartmusic/dates #musedchat
So much of music education on every level is by routine & consistency. Why set a diff tone during class? #musedchat
but discipline doesn’t equal frown. Consistency is more important. #musedchat
Warning followers: my next hour’s tweets are part of the MusEdChat a great online PLN! #musedchat
@edtechdhh use Chrome - it’s small, fast, and gives more screen space to the web site you’re viewing.
RT @badbanana: Daughter’s soccer season starts today. I don’t have a vuvuzela so I’ll be taking my trombone.
@DoremiGirl yeah, we started school Tues. I teach a few computer classes + band. I’d love if they were music tech, but for now just Tech
@DoremiGirl Just listening today. It isn’t a music class, but I do what I can to expose them to it anyway. :)
Listening to Beethoven’s 7th Symphony in Computer Tech class… #nowplaying
if Twitter has shown me anything, it’s that I’m really just a follower.
Symphonic Winds start up again tonight. I could use a good rehearsal. #fb
Beautiful morning & the start of an exceptional school year. #fb
Well, the dry run went pretty well today. Tomorrow we try it all over again but WITH students!
Bunny watching pbskids video - http://moby.to/69gqeb
Good discussion tonight. Sorry I’ve not been involved much… distracted making bunny ears out of paper for my 4yo #musedchat
That being said, I don’t have enough students to audition higher groups, so my band students are mainstreamed - w/ other benefits #musedchat
How many have auditioned ensembles? Tiered ability groups is practical and effective with ensembles. #musedchat
Hello folks! Just getting home from school. Sorry I’m late for #musedchat
It’s been a little while since I’ve experienced 5:30AM. I forgot how delightfully chilly it is. #fb
Excited for the start of another year! Meetings today - students tomorrow.
@gb1191 Yes, I should be. Definately 2. Probably 4.
After hours/days/weeks of volunteer time this Summer, I will actually be on the clock at 7AM tomorrow. #whathappenedtoafterlaborday?

@mikecrain but it’s a cool idler!
@byperc or tipsy.
I need to work on not becoming distracted by everything I need to do. One thing at a time. One thing at a time.
@RickJameswife frustrating, but where would you be without your stomach?
@bjerew I haven’t used Pyware in years, but it was always super buggy. Not a favorite. But it gets the job done.
@jrsteach ah come on, LiveTweeting meetings is a service! They should thank you :D
@egersis yeah, that happened to me earlier but I was refreshing like mad cause I was excited about the new contact manager :D
RT @band_techie: Twitter & my PLN get me pumped about the coming school year! || Me too!
@padgets that is an incredible chat schedule! I figured something like it had to exist. Thanks.
Sorry if this was covered, but what suggestions are there for the best student blogging sites? Something my IT dept won’t block… #edchat
I love the new Google Contacts! Finally sort by last name!!! #duh
You do need to work at maintaining community, but whats nice is when successful, much of the work will come from within. #musedchat
the community surrounding the school is important to foster as well. They are your audience base. They should feel connected #musedchat
When teens feel they are a part of something positive, they will do almost anything (practicing/mentor/etc) 2 promote its success #musedchat
The stronger sense of community w/in the ensemble, th more focused they will be working toward goal of an outstanding performance #musedchat
My Jazz Band puts on a community swing dance each year. It’s a big deal. Folks from all walks & ages dancing together. #musedchat
I made it! Love this topic. Community is vitally important for an ensemble’s success #musedchat
