Like an actor’s script, a sheet of music instructs a musician on what to play (the pitch) and when to play it (the rhythm). Sheet music may look complicated, but once you’ve gotten the hang of a few simple elements like notes, bars and clefs, you’re ready to rock. Tim Hansen hits the instrumental basics you need to read music.

Born three and a half months prematurely, Derek Paravicini is blind and has severe autism. But with perfect pitch, innate talent and a lot of practice, he became an acclaimed concert pianist by the age of 10. Here, his longtime piano teacher, Adam Ockelford, explains his student’s unique relationship to music, while Paravicini shows how he has ripped up the «Chopsticks» rule book.

Image result for emoticon helloHello everyone!!

We‘ve definitely finish the theme of the families of instruments, different instruments and symphony orchestra.

Your final work consisted in building your own instrument with recyclable materials.

You could choose the one you want with two conditions, which will use such material and obviously sound.

We left a week of time for you to think what to build, what materials and how sound and the results have been excellent, really.

It was a big surprise for me but overall hear you say that you have learned a lot from the oral presentations of the families of instruments and then preparing your individual presentation of your instrument to other colleagues.

Now you can enjoy these videos that I have prepared for you to have a great memory of this great theme you have worked very good.

In the first two videos you can watch your buildings and thirdly a tour of the classroom to see them all together.

And of course in the following video are your classmates apart submitting your instrument is sounded.



¿What music styles, bands or artists you like best ???

It is developing a 2.0 Interactive Potpourri of your favorite music group or singers that you like and you’re going to submit through Thinglink.

As you can see, you have to investigate some points for your account.

First you will realize a collage that has to consist of multiple images with their auditions at least SIX groups, styles or different artists, even if one is inspired and wants to expand the work ahead !!! ….Always have more qualifications.

The work is going to do with two tools that you do not know: the COLLAGE photo with PiZap (click on this same word for access) and interactive image with YouTube videos with Thinglink tool.


STEP 1. Carefully SELECT the Youtube AUDITIONS that we use. After looking photos of artists, groups, the covers of your CD .. etc. The Internet went down and we file on your computer (the number of photos, of course, depend on the design of collage but the minimum is 6 images).

STEP 2. CREATE THE COLLAGE with PiZap tool that requires no registration. I leave these screenshots for the collage. Login PiZap Do MAKE Click to COLLAGE.

We selected a design based on the number of photos of our work Click on each square to upload photos Download the COLLAGE to your computer (no need to give SAVE)

STEP 3: Once completed and saved the photo COLLAGE, we continue to work entering the web Thinglink (CLICK ON THIS WORD TO GO TO THE PROGRAM) with your username and password. In each square collage assign its corresponding video (and located in Youtube) pasting the URL. When you finish work you know that you have to send EDUCATE AND EDMODO to present in class to other colleagues.

It was the first time we have used mobiles phone  in class and think we will continue with more Apps.

We have been working with two programas.Android:Music composition and Apple: iwritemusic-free.

With these applications we have learned how to  write basic melodies with and without chords, using various alterations, beats, rhythms

At the same time we heard what we were writing at the time to listen alone or show it to classmates.

Finally we had several options, save scores created, export as images or as midi.

It has been a fantastic experience for me and for the students because we have learned and shared together.

Here you have a video with images of this new experience.

Here there are some examples of compositions 2º ESO A/B  students in Music Composition program have made through their phones or tablets.


It was a new experience and we learned basic elements of musical composition as types of melodies, chords and basic degrees, alterations, various alterations and rhythmic variety.

We have had the opportunity to compose making good use of our mobile and transfer technology to the classroom today.

If you click on the picture you access to view scores in larger size.
