5000 visits. Wow. And thanks. This blog started on 28th September 2010. It had 200 visits in January 2011. And now, a few months on, it has got 5000 visits. That’s a big number.
Thanks for reading All of time and space. Thanks for commenting. Thanks for the advice. Thanks to One Change At A Time and Hanna Wilbur for writing the occasional post (it’s nice to have a change from me once in a while ). Just thank you.
Now, let’s go big and get 10,000.
I came across a great video today about dealing with stress. I’ve tried to embed it, but it won’t work, so you’ll have to click on the link below to see (bear in mind I don’t know whether the content will work outside of the UK – sorry):
What are your thoughts on the video? Do you have any stress management tips of your own? Post them below.
Update: It definitely doesn’t work outside of the UK. Thanks to Hanna for the confirmation.
Stress and a zebra
Recently, I have come across a brass band theory (and much more) website. and I just had to share it. There are study pages, fun quizzes, levels… it goes on and on.
The website is…
. As you may have guessed, the guy who made it is called Mr Golding.
You can leave feedback/ask questions etc. by emailing your queries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One use I would suggest is to set homework to players in a brass band to look at a theory page, study it, do the quiz, and have the quiz during rehearsals to see what they have learned. A fun way to do theory to improve their playing and music skills no end.
You could set them instructions like:
- Log on to www.mrgolding.com
- Click on the green Theory tab at the top
- Beneath the treble clef button, click on the blue Level 1
- Study this page, it is all very straight forward so don’t worry. When you are happy that you have understood everything, click on the Quiz button at the bottom of the page and complete the quiz.
Very simple, and people’s music skills will improve in a fun yet challenging way.
Note: Feel free to use the sample instructions I have used, or edit them to your needs.
