Runs best in Microsoft Explorer. I will cover the entire market of computer
music technology. More information than you imagine but absolutely necessary
before embarking I will also use the Internet to cover a tremendous amount
of information that you can easily replicate via my clinic handout that you

- School web sites for promoting public school K-12 school music programs
is very, very important far beyond posting calendars of events. Learn how
to do audio streaming and video streaming and post all digital recordings
and video to your school web site plus grades 24/7 and much more. To learn
what other schools are doing in promoting their school music programs, you
must go to the following PowerPoint slideshow at: mhtml:http://www.kuzmich.com/2004_ASU_Web_Development.mht!2004_ASU_Web_Development_files/frame.htm
- Digital audio recording so every teacher can have their students posted
on their school web page It is very simple that way I t each it Now you can
reproduce CD’s for your students and parents better yet, audio and video
stream the recordings on your school web site painlessly with nobody doing
it for you and at outrageous fees. See: http://www.kuzmich.com/handouts/digital_magic.html,

- Music notation programs as part of Power User Applications: great place
to start using computers to augment ones teaching probably easier than any
other software application because you can produce projects that can augment
your teaching. See Power_User.
Music scanning software applications is another way to incorporate printed
music into MIDI files and into notation programs ASAP! See HTML presentation
of SmartScore. and SmartScore2
- Automatic Accompaniment Generators: teaching was never so much fun with
this software application. See: mhtml:http://www.kuzmich.com/2004_Band_In_A_Box.mht!2004_Band_In_A_Box_files/frame.htm,
