Teaching Good Pitch Through Example Not Just Words!!!

My students need the examples of good intonation in order to match pitches and play in tune that the Harmony Director can provide.

My Students

I teach 250 seventh, eighth, and ninth graders at a junior high school in a suburb of Salt Lake City, Utah. The entire school population is roughly 1200 students. I am the only band teacher in the school, which is very common in Utah. I see my students daily. They have just started the new year and ready for the next step in their development. I have just come back from the Midwest Band and Orchestra Clinic with a lot of fresh ideas to help them.

The school population is both racially and economically diverse, with a good portion of the students on free and/or reduced-price lunch and/or breakfast.

However, there are some students that spend their spring breaks in Hawaii. One of our school goals is that every student can learn. It is a joy to work with these students.

My Project

My band students have a great desire to excel in music. I am always looking for cutting edge tools to help me give them the best instruction they need. I've seen The Harmony Director in action and can now see how to use it in my classroom as well.

The Yamaha HD (Harmony Director)- 200 is a comprehensive teaching tool that brings harmony training, rhythm training, and sense of timing together in one convenient electronic keyboard.

It will enable me to clearly demonstrate what an in tune chord sounds like. Students will learn how to tune individual notes within chords bringing their ensemble performance to a new and higher level.
