Frankly Speaking :Blog 

This MusicResources.live site has been designed as a Content Management System (CMS) to catalog, house and coordinate classical music resources; either as single well-know selection, like “Peter and The Wolf” or a concert repertoire i.e. “International Rhythm and Dance”,  with an educational component.

You may find a complete lesson plan or two among the postings. But the resources here are more “source material” for you to create your own lesson plan. In addition this site is a perfect place for use in  presenting and projecting audio-video lesson plan components.

The information and material at this site is free and we provide this material for educational purposes.

Use the MENUS on the sidebar to select a title, composer, or program. If there is something you would like to see added to this catalog, let us know.  We will do the research, put together the material and post it.

This site should be considered as Work-In-Process (WIP).  Therefore, things will change, be added and edited. But, in spite of that we hope that this will still be useful to teachers, docents, and others who wish to work with young students and lovers of classical music.

Book II

Book II

This is Book II in a series entitled “From Boom Box to Smart Phone”.  A title I came up with during a lecture at one of the New Docent Training Workshops I was doing for the CSOA Docent Program. It traces the growth and change of the Docent Program in grade school settings from a classroom lecture and activity class to one filled with music, excitement and interaction with the computer technology of the 21st Century.

The books in the series are

Book I – Guide to the Docent Program

Book II – Tools and techniques

Book III – New Docent Training and Development

As I say in the prologue and/or introduction to all these books;  The work is based on my experience of nearly 15 years with the CSOA Docent Program.
