Like every other music teacher in the world I am always looking for a great fundraiser idea. My idea of a great fundraiser is anything that makes me 100% profit. Well here are some links to amusement parks that offer tickets to schools that they can auction off for fundraisers.
I have currently only done the Disneyland one but it worked like a charm I have been told to expect them in the mail any day now.
Let me know if you have any luck with these as well.

So what does the new ipad mean for music educators. Right now nothing. But the possibilities are pretty cool and it is fun to speculate about. I can see the day where every student is assigned an ipad like device, whether it is an “ipad” who knows but for the sake of argument well say it is. We could basically do away with text books and most of our paper products in general, including sheet music.

This could be good and bad I guess but since were just having fun lets stick to the good.

– Prices of music could come down cutting out material/delivery costs.

– You could have instant delivery of purchased music.

– Publishers could update their material wirelessly, preventing errors.

-You could have music attached to some sort of software that could play aurally the notes for students.

– Kids would have this resource with them at all time

– Could send sight-reading examples directly to each students ipad.

Music theory worksheets with instant feed back and tutorials.

These are just a few of the ideas I had right off. What benefit could you see?
