As I type this, I am sitting down at NYPD pizza taking advantage of their WiFi because my internet is down and the soonest it will be taken care of isn’t until tomorrow evening. Worst timing ever!
Thank goodness for free WiFi or I wasn’t sure how I was going to do the giveaway for today!
I am giving away a copy of one of my Creative Story Compositions. Creative Story Compositions have become a favorite composition tool in my studio and I’m just starting to use it with students. They meld story making and composition creativity into one. You can find out more about it here: http://youtu.be/3Mm6ekAfybs
If you win, you can choose from the Circus Carnival, Medieval Quest and a brand new Pirate theme coming soon!
Enter the giveaway at the rafflecopter below. Since I’m having this tech issue of having no internet at home, I decided to extend the entries to Friday just to be safe. Better safe than sorry right? So if for some reason the rafflecopter isn’t working for you, come back in 24 hours and check again…
Good luck! Rafflecopter will go live on Tuesday, August 18th.
It’s been super busy behind the scenes over here. Several of you have asked when the new practice incentive program will be ready and I have good news! It will be released this weekend! WHOOHOO!!!
Thank you so much for your patience! I was hoping to have it out the beginning of this week but I was in the middle of a huge blog update and along with a few other things, caused some set backs! I promise it will be sooooo worth the wait! Here are a couple more sneak peak pictures if you missed some of them on Facebook… plus a new one! Canyon Creek Media made the whole green screen idea a possibility! So fun!
Speaking of blog update…
First, if you haven’t gone directly to FPSResources.com, check it out! I have been wanting to do a big update to the blog awhile back and then realized this is never going to get done unless I hire someone to do it for me. So who to better ask but Bryn Sowash with Skitterbug! She has been great to work with, I would highly recommend her. We are in the final phase and I am so excited!

Getting ready for Phase 2 for our QUEST and thought I would share a little “behind the scenes” picture.
If you missed the sneak peak of phase 1, click here. Getting exciting!
I’m leaving for Vegas tomorrow to attend the TpT conference this week. I am looking forward to that, but it means that Phase 2 will have to take a little intermission while I’m gone. Stay tuned!
The last couple days have been a lot of fun with the fabulous freebies and $4 deals. Hope you were able to take advantage. Don’t forget to leave some feedback when you can. Starting today (Friday) through tomorrow, my store along with many others will be running a 20% off sale. Great time to plan for the upcoming school year.
Thank you for your support and have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
It’s the 3rd week in the #TpTChallenge and this week is Make Your Masterpiece! I gave a little spoiler when I was on The Modern Musicians Show with Colin Thomson the other day so I thought I would give even more today!
As most of you know I have been diligently working hard on this years theme. I still have a couple weeks to polish it off, but I am just so darn excited I can’t WAIT until lessons begin!
This year students will be going on a story-based quest where they will complete challenges along the way. EVERYTHING you will need – challenges (ranging from technique/artistry to notes, rhythms, scales, etc.), games, stories and videos will be included! I also made a couple different options available so if you don’t necessarily want to follow the challenges I set up you will also have the freedom to set your own.
What sets this program apart from anything else I have done (besides being CHOCK FULL of goodies) or anything I have seen that is out there is I threw in some augmented reality! I am just finishing up the printable and will be starting on prepping for the video’s/augmented reality portion. I should have this all done mid-July, just in time for fall lessons to begin. (I don’t know when school starts for you guys, but in AZ we start early August!)
I’d love to hear what you think of it so far! I predict it is going to be a student/teacher favorite!
Wasn’t all the freebies yesterday unbelievable? I hope you were able to take advantage of them. You can still get mine for free here.
We are now into Day 2 of the Music Teachers 4th of July Celebration and today is $4 Thursday! Great deals discounted to just $4.00. A couple months ago, I updated my Instrument and Composer Bundle so I thought I would go ahead and offer this set as our special today! These are easy to prep and use for students to put together on their own or in a group setting.
By the way, did you know when you purchase a product on TpT you will always have the most updated version without having to pay anything extra? This is one of my favorite features and one of the reasons I love being a seller on TpT because it ultimately saves you money. I can’t tell you how many times I have bought something only to find out a few years down the road there is an updated version and if I wanted it I would have to re-invest all over again. With TpT you just go to “my purchases” and it will notify you if a product has been updated so you can re-download. No need to purchase again. LOVE that! So… if you already have this bundle, go and re-download for the latest version!
To find the $4.00 deals. Just search for $4MusicFlashSale on TeachersPayTeachers! And don’t forget to follow!
Did you hear? I recently had the privilege to be one of Colin’s guest on a fabulous new podcast show called “The Modern Musician Show with Colin Thomson“. The podcast interview is now LIVE! Be sure to tune in to the show!
