Homework suggestions for Directors on Internet 2.0

Directors,
Some thoughts from members regarding usage and contribution on the new paradigm of MSBD:

1. Interact and use MSBandDirector.com as your professional "Facebook."  (much more private interactions)
2. Experience new literature by visiting both the collaborative lists and the composer pages on the network. Ask the composers for program notes and insight to their pieces as you listen to their music!
3. Please consider uploading your handbook to the forums to share with all. Comparative research.
4. Consider uploading some professional pictures of your program.  This creates a slideshow just for your desk.  Choose if you might like to share with others.
5. Invite some more professional music educators to join "Your" network (Create a Group). Messaging capabilities become initiated and email can be a thing of the past.
6. If you use one of the videos with your students, please rate them and consider uploading materials to go with it. Worksheets needed!  Questions needed...Lessons created.
7. Check out the links on the main page (and forums/videos), remember that the pdf's are "stacks" and after looking through the stacks, decide if you have a better or complimentary handout and upload it. It will be added to the stack for everyone's use.  We always need new materials.
8. Create helpful videos that you teach with. Share them with the membership to use, if you like.  Please also add educational support to the comments below each video in the form of guided questions or uploaded worksheets.
9. Set MSBandDirector.com as your browsers homepage at school.
10. Take the time to organize your top 10 literature lists for each music category and upload these to the forums. This will take time, but is what all directors can do to insure great programs/literature Worldwide.

Free Chamber Sheet Music

Ballinasloe

This lively Irish reel in B-flat major is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. Ballinasloe is one of the largest towns in County Galway, Ireland.

Study in E-flat major by Andersen

The study in E-flat major we present today is the nineteenth piece from Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen's Twenty-Four Etudes for Flute, Op. 30. It carries the character indication “Con anima”, which in Italian literally means “with soul”.

Menuets by Naudot

This pair of minuets constitutes the closing movement of the fourth of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The French term babiole humbly indicates something of little value or importance, a trifle.
