Drum Talk - a new iBook
“Drum Talk” is a teaching method created by musician and educator Marc Wagnon that does not require students to have any previous knowledge of music technique. The method is based on group dynamics, and by starting with simple concepts by singing the polyrhythms and various drum strokes before playing them on instruments, which is an adaptation from the West African way of transmitting drumming knowledge. This system allows the group to attain a level of complexity that would normally demand longer preparation. The book of 10 lessons contains 58 video clips and 86 musical examples.

VoiceOver: a 4th of July special!
Since starting this part of the newsletter, I've been steadily experimenting with the possibilities of interaction between visually impaired and the computer in a creative way.God Bless America video
This video is an example of what can be done. One of my students made an arrangement of America the Beautiful using GarageBand to create the sequence, and although 13-year old Matheucz has been blind since birth, he had the vision to want fireworks along with the music. In order to do this we created one extra silent track that would trigger generated virtual fireworks using a QuartzComposer composition that I created for this purpose. See the result here. Happy 4th of July!
America the Beautiful
