Mrs Traquair's Virtual Band Room

Page history last edited by Lilian Traquair 5 years, 2 months ago










I originally created Music Tooter for my own Beginning Band Program, but am now trying to include resources that all Band teachers may find useful.


Soon to be released are  Two Minute Lessons

that  address many questions for all levels of school age instrumentalists. 


Enjoy this website and make copies of anything you find useful.


My goal continues to be to post the best learning resources I can find for our school age musicians.

Flashnote Derby

Make a game of note reading!


Pro Metronome

A metronome is a device that keeps a steady beat and allows students to practice with accuracy.


Cleartune Tuner

Especially valuable for our brass players, but all good musicians own one, is a tuner that will show the player if they are getting the correct pitch.


Finger Chart

The students all have one in the back of their books, but this one will isolate each note and the children will have access to it any time. There is a separate one for each instrument. 










How it is Made

 Some of these are from the show

How it is Made. 

 (videos about how instruments

and  reeds are made at the factory.




This is a powerpoint quiz on band instrument recognition.
