What people are saying about MusicplayOnline:
"I really like it! I played the videos and did the dances. I made some funny moves up with the beat. I wish that we could do it again!" - Alexander, student
Thank-you! My students loved the Oscar Peterson lesson this morning! I teach an online class to grades 5-7. They had some really great insightful responses after watching the documentary on Oscar's life. One student said it left him with the message to "keep trying, no matter what!" Another student said that "the jazz music spoke" to him! Such a great timely lesson for this week listening to the Hymn to Freedom song. So beautiful! 💖
This is my first time teaching these awesome lessons. I usually work on classical composers at this time of year, but I am really loving following your plans and developing my own pro d as we work through this jazz unit together.
Thanks as always for your outstanding work and planning! - Cheryl
I just wanted to write and say thank you for all the online learning resources you have published weekly on top of the usual content.
Your lessons and resources have been an absolute lifesaver for me during our most recent lockdown and whilst we were learning at home.
My classes have really enjoyed lots of the activities and the resources have given me lots of ideas for fun practical tasks. There are no other sites which have such a comprehensive set of easily accessible resources and plans.
So thank you so much - I am forever appreciative! - Kim
I want to tell you that purchasing MusicplayOnline is the best thing I have ever done for my music teaching in general and especially during Covid. I can’t believe how much is available through the online program and through the regular program. It has transformed what I do. I have had the books and CDs for years and incorporated them into my music teaching but this summer I decided to purchase the online program. Anything and everything is there, for all the age groups that I teach. And with the Online program, there is so much more. I watched a video the other day of you using stuffed toys to do a chase race with rhythms and I was stunned at how creativity you are supporting teachers during this difficult time by continuing to come up with these alternate solutions. All I can say is THANK YOU for all you and your team are doing. - Laura
