Music Tech Teacher

This site was used as an extension of my music technology and band classrooms. I taught Instrumental Music (Band and Music Technology) from 1992-2018 in the Birmingham City School System before retiring. My students learned how to read, write, compose, publish and perform their music. This site includes student projects and work, videos, photos and music compositions from my former students. The site also has music technology links, quizzes, resources and information for all music teachers interested in using technology to enhance music instruction. I hope that the site will serve as a valuable resource for teachers and students. Thank you for visiting! Ms. Karen Garrett (Retired), Music Tech Teacher

The site includes, among other things, the parts of a sheet of music and what many music terms mean.

Music theory is the foundation of music, including the complex language that is interpreted to make melodious sounds. Understanding music theory involves reading music and the notations and phrases needed to write or play music. Although children need to spend time reading literature, working on math problems, and playing outside on playground equipment, a well-rounded education should also include music. Music education enhances language development and stimulates the brain to work harder, which often raises a student's IQ.
