Music Education has a whimsical side to it. Music teachers and student musicians get to see the funny in class and rehearsals. Cello There takes all of this and puts it in one place where we can see a new set of Music Education Funnies every weekday by Gregory Pavliv and MusicTeachingGuru.com
We have finally posted our Music Teaching Guru art pieces online. And we created a storefront as Thistle & Poe. "The husband and wife team that make up Thistle & Poe (Cheryl & Greg) combine their passion for art and music by composing unique, one-of-a-kind "small arts" that everyone can appreciate (and afford :-). They enjoy keeping designs simple and hiding conversation starters around the mixed media pieces linking to favorite books, characters, composers, musicians or lyrics. The art doesn't tell a story, it STARTS a story."
Print it out and post it. Here's a great (and subtle) Harry Potter music education printable. You can quietly add a little Hogwarts to your music room or add a little inside joke with you music students on the old bulletin board. For the record, this Potter quote is from Hogwart's Headmaster, Albus Dumbledore. Dumbledore is know for some amazing quotes throughout the series, this is my favorite: "Ah, music, a magic beyond all we do here!" ALSO, see the "Expecto Patronum" at the top if the poster? Well it's a spell from J.K. Rowling which means to 'make your innermost joy and happiness come to life to bring you strength'. Quite fitting for us muggles.
