Top 3 Amazon Product MUST-HAVES For Music TeachersJul 11, 2023
Let's cut to the chase- I've compiled my top three FAVORITE Amazon items that have made my daily teaching just a smidge easier. On that note, let's crescendo right into the top picks.
In 3rd place, the lifeline of every music maestro – caffeine. And what better to cradle that precious elixir than the Contigo West Loop Stainless Steel Vacuum-Insulated Travel Mug. Believe me when I say this is my daily partner-in-crime while teaching, keeping my coffee at just the right temperature. Don't believe me? Well, believe video-me. How about cold drinks? Those stay chill for up to 12 hours, perfect for cooling down after finding out your students don't know the difference between a quarter note and a Treble Clef...
Ok ok, I'm a little biased on this one, but I'm looking forward to sharing "Music Teacher Moments: Why Altos NEVER Sing the Melody…" with my music students next school year. Not only will your students love to pick it up and read it in your classroom, but each purchase also grants access to the gut-busting video version. Plot twist? My wife lends her melodious voice to the alto character. A definite MUST-HAVE for any choir director!
At the top of the charts is THE BEST piece of technology I never knew I needed - this wireless presentation remote that operates like a Wii remote with a laser pointer! Picture this: controlling everything on your classroom projector like you're conducting an invisible orchestra, waving your magic wand like a tech-savvy wizard. This remote will make you the maestro of multimedia presentations, Three Minute Theory interactive video lessons, Rhythm Rumbler, video vocal warmups and more! Be sure to check out the full video review below! 👇
While I know music teachers' classrooms vary greatly, allow me to make one last shoutout to the Alesis Recital Pro. I've owned this 88-key marvel for years, and, note for note, dollar for dollar, it's the best MIDI keyboard you can get for your classroom or home studio (where I currently use mine) on Amazon. Right price, midi connectivity, FULLY-weighted keys, built-in metronome and transpose functions... 🤌
