Are you a music teacher searching for sanity in the midst of all your chaotic responsibilities? Music teachers have to do so much more than teach music. They have to be master musicians, educators, and conductors, all while balancing other professional disciplines like arranging, composing, trip planning, financing, and more. The parts of the job that take our sights off of great teaching must be managed so that we can focus on what counts: the music. If you are feeling overwhelmed by the logistics of your job, you are in luck- there is an app for that! Actually, a lot of apps. And Digital Organization Tips for Music Teachers is here to tell you all about them. Every teacher has something to gain from this book. Whether you can barely turn your computer on or if you are just looking for tips on how to make your work more efficient, there is something in store for you. The technologies in this book are presented in bite sized descriptions of desktop and mobile apps, followed by applications of how they can solve specific problems that music teachers experience every day. Each chapter covers a different type of data that music teachers have to organize, ranging from notes, to tasks, to scores and audio recordings. Music teachers have it too hard to ignore modern technology but too little time to invest in software that requires a degree to understand. The technology in this book is so simple to grasp the basics of, you will be able to jump right in and start putting these tips into practice at every page turn.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Digital Organization Tips for Music Teachers describes one music teacher's adventures in search of time-saving, useful, and organizational technologies. Robby Burns tries out and describes a wide range of tools to help him keep on top of a busy schedule and engage his students in many aspects of music learning."--Ella Wilcox, Music Educators Journal, National Association for Music Education (NAfME)


"This book will help you make technology trends work for you instead of against you in your music classroom. Burns guides the reader through every tech aspect facing the modern music teacher and gives best practices and tips specific to leading bands, choirs and general music courses."--Will Kuhn, Music Teacher, Lebanon High School


"Robby Burns merges his instrumental music teaching experience and vast knowledge of digital tools to provide information that helps new and seasoned directors better organize their professional lives. Burns delivers well-researched and practiced ideas that allow you to 'automate everything' from taking notes to scheduling performances; from scanning musical scores to managing audio, images, and videos. Burns is not shy about recommending his favorite apps and admittedly has a preference for Apple products, though as someone who uses Android devices I found plenty of helpful solutions to everyday organizational issues. The book is easy to read and full of personal examples. I will recommend this book to all of my graduate and undergraduate music education students."--Michael P. Hewitt, Professor of Music Education, University of Maryland
