Interesting ideas, but this begs the question:
Why do we as instrumental music educators need to come up with “e-learning” topics when each student should have his/her instrument at home and can actually practice their instrument?
If the administrative techno-powers that be demand an “e-learning” opportunity, then have the student record a selection and submit the recording either through “Charms” or Canvas or some Google platform as proof of their home practice.
Why reinvent the wheel with an assignment that may or may not impact the way they play and their sound when they should be practicing?
