“YouTube in Music Education” Thursday, May 13, 2010

Founded in 2005, YouTube has revolutionized the way information is shared through video on the internet.  The first complete music educators' guide to harnessing the power of YouTube for students, YouTube in Music Education teaches instructors how to tap into the excitement of YouTube with students by creating, posting, and promoting videos on the most popular media service in the world.  Explaining how to record and edit videos, add effects, and upload content, Dr. Tom Rudolph and Dr. James Frankel describe everything from the basics of video production to advanced applications for use in the classroom.

The authors explain how teachers can use YouTube privately with their students and integrate it with websites and blogs.  Educators can use YouTube for applications that include creating instrument and software tutorials, evaluating group and individual performances, sharing content with students, and many other uses.  This book includes more than 50 strategies for integrating YouTube into the music curriculum and tutorials on video and audio production and preparing and uploading content.
