I debated on whether or not to include this on the technology series, but since Wikipedia says that technology is “the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used … in the accomplishment of objectives….” I thought it was justifiable 🙂
I learned this trick from my friend and colleague VP Boyle (check out his book here!) Instead of marking up your students’ music with pencil and then trying to erase those notes that are no longer relevant a few weeks later, have them put their music in clear sheet protectors and use dry erase markers. You can use all the colors you want, make the markings as big as you want, and then when the student no longer needs the note, you just wipe it off. It’s GENIUS!
Thanks VP and to everyone else – enjoy!
