Mike Lawson tells it like it is

Great Q&A with TI:ME’s executive director in SBO this month.  I sometimes have trouble defining what exactly TI:ME does, and this paragraph really nails it down:

There are a lot of band directors moving towards retirement. The older band directors are the ones who are least likely to adapt. Many of the newer ones coming in are already familiar with some of the more widespread music software, but they still haven’t spent a ton of time doing audio production or recording. Those educators could still benefit from some training on a basic understanding of the physics of sound and how to explain that to kids.  The bottom line is that TI:ME wants to help teachers figure out how to solve these problems.

Bottom line: if you’re a music teacher and your classes are losing modern relevance, TI:ME will help you drag yourself (kicking and screaming?) into the 21st century.
