Nice that my very own Roseville can make national news. Too bad it’s for some guy going crazy and burning down our mall.
@stumpy6653 Yep. No school this week. Although I feel busier than normal. I can get a lot of administrative stuff done with an open sched
Big fire on Roseville Galleria mall. #wow
@stumpy6653 worth the time. And I really don’t. I’m still frantically grading, planning tour, making posters/tickets & cleaning the house.

Cleaning now, quintet later.
is on taxi service today. Off to get the kids.
@dougbutchy but it’s worth it in the long run! Document what you’re going through so you’ll recognize the transformation that takes place.
@lindsaymorelli ugh! that is horrible. I’m backing up mine right now.
@lindsaymorelli are you going to be able to get yours back?
watching Torchwood and writing a blog entry. #notrelated
@dougbutchy I keep thinking about that too. It’s harder than it seems!
Working on flyers, posters, and tickets for our upcoming “Swing into the Night” Big Band Dance. http://ow.ly/2W3AG
@stumpy6653 well, if you wait until tomorrow to do your best work, you’ll never do it.

@LindsayMorelli Ok, well now it’s not there. Sorry you’re having site problems.
@mikecrain Yes, I nearly changed my name to Edgar Varese for that very reason. ;)
@LindsayMorelli Your blog theme looks great. Doesn’t seem to be doing anything weird.

Well that brings this weeks session to a close. Thanks to everyone. This has been a great discussion! #musedchat
John Wooden said to “Make each day your Masterpiece”. I really like that and try to live it with my teaching & performing. #musedchat
Well folks we’ve got just 5 minutes remaining. I’ve looked fwd 2 this topic and it hasn’t disappointed! Final lessons/thoughts? #musedchat
But we learn to overcome failures and continue pursuing successes. There’s still the rest of the Symphony to be played! #musedchat
In attempting & mastering (in stages) our instrument, & in successful performances, we gain Self-Confidence. #musedchat
In music, we learn that everyone has a voice, that they are all different, and all valuable. #musedchat
In practicing to perfect our parts, we develop a strong work ethic, attention to detail, and the ability to concentrate. #musedchat
In performing with an ensemble you learn Situational Awareness. This skill of observation is greatly important in many areas. #musedchat
One of the things that becomes more and more evident as you mature is that listening trumps speaking (or playing/singing) #musedchat
Personal responsibility / punctuality / accountability to your ensemble #musedchat
Life Lesson: Setting goals & perseverance! #musedchat
Topic: What are life lessons we teach our students/ourselves through music education?” #musedchat
@LindsayMorelli I just logged in through StartLogic and it worked. So I guess it must be some other issue. ?
@LindsayMorelli Haven’t noticed - but I generally log in straight through the blog admin site. I’ll give SL a try and let you know.
Music Teachers: Join us for the next hour on Twitter searching: #MusEdChat for a quick-paced discussion on life lessons learned in Music Ed
@stumpy6653 You got horn & tuba music for HC? We may be able to play it.
Is #musedchat happening today? I haven’t seen any posts. Are we going beck to the topic voted on last week?
@stumpy6653 if you get a chance, give me a call when you’re by your computer. I’ll help you get set up.
Power is flickering on and off in Roseville - Baseline & Foothills area.
Today’s agenda: Work on Band Tour, Blog, Grade Tech class, Field trip forms, MusEdChat, SacConcertBand rehearsal.
Really exhausted after the last few days. Good thing my school dist decided to take 6 weeks off throughout the year and this is one of them!
watching “The Legend of 1900”. Tim Roth is great. Plus a ship and a piano and dynamite. Good stuff.
It’s like he’s trying to tell me something. http://ow.ly/i/4DBX

Full day: Jazz Band, Tech class, Marching Band, Website updates, MuseScore lab, Color Guard. Now home, then Symphonic Winds rehearsal!
Goodnight everyone. Until next week. Ok, well probably tomorrow. #musedchat
I was really impressed with Alfred’s Essentials of Music Theory 3 - it seems way more web2.0ey than before. I’m upgrading. #musedchat
I’m glad to hear the sessions were recorded for review later. Seeing as how we all missed at least 3/4 of them! #musedchat
I taught Jazz Band at 6:30AM then had a sub for the rest of the day. #musedchat
Hello folks… Catching up on the past 15 while I catch my breath. #musedchat

Time to go pay off Starbucks for letting me use their “conference room” all day! #metos2010

Meeting carpool group at 2:30 at the school. Everyone else at 2:55 at the Auburn Regal Cinema. DON’T wear your band shirt - remember the FM.
Quick department meeting, then weekend!
A mini-break! Early release, no Pep Band, no competition tomorrow… Fun para-band activity tomorrow afternoon though!
90% of the answers to technical ?s in my computer class = did you turn it off & on again? & is it plugged in? #theITcrowd - gr8 training vid
@pianotyke no, today was 2, 3, 4, 5. Tomorrow is 1, 2, 3, 6. But lunchtime is fine.
@pianotyke lunch is fine, or 6th period, or after school.
@justine_robin I was making fun of my lack of friends playing foursquare… sarcasm may not have translated.
@justine_robin - Friends, huh? ;)
Loving the early dark tonight! At Rio Americano HS for Sac Concert Band rehearsal.
@stumpy6653 we need to get you into the MusEd Chat next Mon on Twitter. That’s what you’ve been seeing fr/ me. 5-6PM Online Collaboration!
Goodnight all. Thanks for the great #musedchat
or a Jamhub #musedchat
But just think if he DID have a computer! #musedchat
We shouldn’t rely on the innovation as a crutch, but shouldn’t shoot it down as one either. #musedchat
All innovations will result in some users becoming lazy and others pushing forward with revolutionary uses. #musedchat
Well, I think we’re going to see the largest jump on the tech side. That’s what’s new. Ppl have been rehearsing for 100’s of yrs #musedchat
I have used my website to recommend / push students toward musical learning resources for them to look into on their own. #musedchat
Removing concert Gb from the list of acceptable pitches has greatly improved intonation. :P #musedchat
It’s seems there’s been a move in some communities to use culturally relevant music to reach Ss: Mariachi, steel drum, etc. #musedchat
Access to digital recording audio/video equipment allows students/directors to record everything for review. #musedchat
Noteflight/MuseScore, etc. - I remember transposing out parts by hand in HS. Much easier & more professional now. #musedchat
Music Industry Studies programs seem to have been born or blossomed in this time. #musedchat
Well, I’ve taught for the past 11 years, but my 1st program was hardly innovative then. Still figuring out best processes. #musedchat
whew! just pulled off the highway to a St*rbucks on the way home for musedchat

No competition scheduled this weekend, so we’ll have our Marching Marathon rehearsal instead. Thankfully the weather should be cooler!
@stumpy6653 you said CTM was a trio. I didn’t know who was out, but figured the Murray’s were still together. Yes?
