The Journey to Jamulus – Virtual Coffee Shop Podcast #20

As a musician, tech enthusiast and educator, I have always hoped a time would come that it would be possible to rehearse, jam or perform live over the internet with people in different locations in affordable ways. With all the technology development over the last couple of decades, the time is now.

In this podcast with my long time friend, musician and fellow educator Bob Duff,  we share reflections on our journey to the Jamulus software and our experiences along the way to piano (Bob) and clarinet (me) online live synchronous music making.

You know the drill … grab a cup of your favourite coffee brew and enjoy the conversation!

This Virtual Coffee Shop podcast is a follow up to to this podcast  with Shannon Clark recorded one year ago after meeting Shannon in April 2019.

It is really nice to see a project and goal come together. Grab a cup of your favourite brew, or perhaps an iced coffee at this time of year and enjoy the podcast with Shannon and Mackenzie.

Sound Waves in Education with Noa Daniel

Over the last couple of weeks I have have the pleasure of working with Noa Daniel (@noasbobs) to prepare my guest session with her for the Personal Playlist Podcast (P3) on Voiced Radio.

 

 

 

 

The approach used for the podcast series is based on a practice that Noa uses in her classroom. I was asked to choose 3 songs: nostalgic, identity, pick-me-up/inspirational. The podcast conversation focuses unpacking the songs, why these particular ones were selected and why they are important to me.

I found this approach to be a great experience. To me, the idea of bringing personal music choices and relating them to one’s personal story is very powerful. I can certainly see why this would be effective in classroom setting. Noa is a wonderful host and I appreciate having the opportunity to be welcomed to her podcast series.

Here are the links to Noa’s podcast and blog post.

The Virtual Coffee Shop podcast – session 10

I had a  wonderful recent opportunity to connect with Ontario teacher Scott McKenzie to record this podcast on his approach to embracing coding in the classroom, how his approach has changed and evolved over the last few year and catch a glimpse at “what next” in Scott’s classroom.

I hope listeners appreciate Scott’s open and reflective conversation.  Head to the kitchen, prepare a fresh brew and enjoy this conversation with Scott McKenzie.
