In class we have been working on Google Sites. This is a pretty decent website builder that Google has set up. I have had fun building a website that I can either use for a classroom website, or have as a professional site.
I believe that classroom sites are almost mandatory for band programs. In today's world, it only makes sense for music programs to have announcements, forms, music, and a calendar on the web. Parents can now go online and view notes from booster meetings and really know what is going on in the band program. I think that these sites are also good because media can be shared.
These sites can be seen as a site that helps to build community for the band. You can check out some sample band websites and a professional site:
I have a Music Education degree from the University of Tennessee. My primary instrument is percussion. I have taught percussion programs in the Knox County area for three years and have also taught private lessons in the Nashville and Knoxville areas.
