From the Desk of the President of TI:ME

  • From the Desk of the President - October 2014

    It is with mixed emotions that I write to you for the final time in my term as President. Obviously, holding a position of leadership in a professional organization such as TI:ME can be trying. Everyone who helps run TI:ME is a volunteer, and it is difficult to prioritize volunteer responsibilities for which there may not be immediate reward.  Motivating people to participate, and convincing members and potential members that the value of TI:ME is directly proportional to that which you put into it, have been the most difficult tasks of my presidency. 

    That said, I have certainly enjoyed this position. I have learned a tremendous amount about leading an organization. I have gotten to work very closely with some of my idols in our field, and I will always value those experiences.

I was joined by 65 other music industry leaders and celebrity artists in this three-day advocacy effort, where we worked to shore up congressional support to build access to music education for all children into national education legislation. As a music educator and music education advocate, this effort is near and dear to my heart.

Commercial Member Spotlight on BEAMZ!
“Bang! Zap!” were the words coming from my students' smiling mouths as they ran their fingers along the lights emitting from the Beamz controller in front of them, interacting with the samples in the application and creating music with just a wave of their hands. Making music by manipulating a beam of light is not an everyday experience for a normal person. Beamz Interactive was started by Arizona songwriter and musician Jerry Riopelle. His vision to play music with light was how the latest midi laser controller from Beamz got made into reality. Being ahead of its time, Jerry waited 5 years for the technology to mature while he worked on the prototype before finally creating the Beamz Interactive company and putting the its first controller into mass production for the public. Since its first production run, Beamz controllers have been in the hands of special education teachers,

Reflections on the TI:ME National Conference
Besides rapidly graying hair and a never-ending stream of administrative responsibilities (sleep is overrated), perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of serving as department chair is not having as much time to get outside the office and attend as many conferences as a normal faculty member might. Not only do conferences provide an opportunity to step back from the day-to-day tasks, but they also provide a chance for one to learn new concepts and skills, ask questions and share ideas, and discover new and interesting resources. In a nutshell, conferences are a “recharge.” Prior to starting as chair, I attended two “recharging opportunities,” one in the fall and one in the spring. Each fall I attended the Association for Technology in Music Instruction (ATMI) conference and, most springs, the Technology Institute for Music Educators (TI:ME). Due to my chair responsibilities, it

A Message from Richard McCready
Hello TI:ME members: I have accepted the position of Chapters Chair for TI:ME, and would like to declare 2014 as the year of the chapters. TI:ME has a network of chapters in many US states and in other countries, allowing local members to meet, collaborate, and learn more about integrating technology in the music classroom.   Each chapter is responsible for helping to let others know about TI:ME opportunities at the local level, and there is money available in the budget to help you with that. Ideally, chapters should provide an opportunity for members to meet in a formal or informal setting at least twice a year, and should be a presence at each state's Music Educator's Association conference. If you already have an active chapter in your area, please contact me and let me know what you are doing together as a chapter. I would like to post news of chapters in the TI:ME eblasts, so

TI:ME Announces New Certification Training
TI:ME is pleased to announce two significant developments in its certification procedures for 2014. First, TI:ME certification is still earned through two courses for level 1, and three additional courses for level 2, but TI:ME's new structure enables institutions to also include courses other than those developed by TI:ME. This means that certification will be more relevant and current, and it will be easier for institutions to participate in the process. The traditional TI:ME course materials and resources remain available to students and instructors but participants in TI:ME courses will see a broader curriculum as early as this summer. The second development is that the institutional fees for schools offering TI:ME certification have been eliminated. This means that the financial obstacles that previously stood in the way of TI:ME certification at universities, school districts,
