VH1 Professional Development Sessions Available At Music Educators Conferences

VH1 continues to provide professional development sessions at educators conferences through out the United States. Attendees at the International Association For Jazz Education and the Indiana, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Texas Music Educators Conferences, had the opportunity to attend "VH1 Music Studio – How To Access Innovative Cable In The Classroom Educational Television Programming," which provided information on how to access and make effective use of copyright cleared, commercial free educational television programming and corresponding Internet resources.

A second session, Why Advocate Now? How To Be Proactive Rather Than Reactive. provided attendees with materials and ideas on how to be a proactive advocate for music education. Attendees found out why the current fiscal and education environments cause the need to spread the word about the importance of music education, more than ever before.

There is still time catch VH1 this week at the Texas Music Educators Conference in San Antonio and attend sessions and visit the exhibits at the National Association of Elementary School Principals Conference and MENC: The National Association For Music Education Conferences in April.

Summer Guitar Workshops Available

GAMA, the Guitar and Accessories Marketing Association, in partnership with NAMM and MENC sponsor six workshops for educators at various locations around the country each summer.

In 1995, GAMA, NAMM and MENC launched this program to train teachers to start guitar programs in middle and high schools. Teachers who agreed to start a guitar program in their home school, received tuition to attend one of the 6 summer guitar workshops, a guitar valued at $500.00 and accessories and publications totalling $300.00.

From 1995 to 2001, 650 teachers attended summer workshops from 48 states, Canada and France. An estimated 647,350 students have learned guitar as a result of these workshops.

School music teachers who would like to attend a workshop and learn how to start a guitar program can log onto http://www.discoverguitar.com/workshops or visit the MENC guitar page.

VH1 Music Studio Teacher’s Choice – Educators Called On To Vote For Their Favorite VH1 Programs For Cable In The Classroom Airings May 2002 – August 2002

As VH1 Music Studio’s programming year for Cable in the Classroom is coming to an end, VH1 is inviting educators to vote for their favorite shows to be re-aired during the months of May through August 2002. Due to the overwhelming response from educators as a result of VH1’s scheduling theme "Music a Reflection of the Times," VH1 Music Studio will take requests from educators via email at vh1musicstudio@vh1staff.com on the most popular shows aired commercial free for use in the music and cross-curricular classroom.

VH1’s 2001-2002 programming has focused on how music both influenced and was effected by the social and historical events taking place at the time during which the music was written. Descriptions from past programming can be found http://www.vh1musicstudio.com/past.html. Educators are encourage to browse through the past programming links and vote for their favorite programs by emailing vh1musicstudio@vh1staff.com with VOTE FOR TEACHER’S CHOICE in the subject area along with a brief description on why they would like VH1 Music Studio to re-air the show. Only shows that have been aired previously for VH1 Music Studio will be considered.

As a network member of the Cable in the Classroom initiative, VH1 airs commercial free educational programming for use in the music and cross-curricular classroom each month. By taping the program, teachers can keep the shows and use them at the point and time that most appropriately fits into their curriculum. The music programming featured for VH1 Music Studio are based on a multitude of concepts that can reinforce the National Music Standards and integrate music with other subject areas. VH1 works in partnership with your local cable company to provide these valuable educational resources available on VH1 and through www.vh1musicstudio.com.

In partnership with MENC: The National Association for Music Education, standards based lesson plans are developed to coincide with each program. The lesson plans provide ideas on how to use the programming in an interactive lesson. These materials are available to educators at this month’s program and lesson plans.

Programs can be taped on VH1, each month on the first Tuesday of every month at 4:00 am EST/ 3:00 am CST. Educators should set their VCR's for taping late Monday night. VH1 Music Studio programs are commercial free and copyright cleared for use in the classroom for one year. For a full schedule, please visit http://www.vh1musicstudio.com/future.html.
