Quaver’s always on the move and hard to catch standing still! Once a week, Program Producer Steve Gilreath runs along side Graham Hepburn (aka Quaver) to ask him 3 Quick Questions.

 

Today is all about:

Skype Visits
with Quaver!

 

 

 

Q1: You’ve started Skyping with students in classrooms all across the country. How does that work?

Quaver: One of my favorite things to do is Skype with teachers and students in schools that are using Quaver. It is fun to just drop in on a class from our studio Music Shop set! To the kids, it looks like we are calling from the episodes they’ve seen and love. We test all the communications and tech out for the school before, and the kids really love it . . . as do I!

Q2: What do you talk about during the Skype calls?

Quaver: Generally we talk about an area of music that they have been learning about in our DVD series, but we can talk about QuaverMusic.com as well. I always ask the teacher to give me a few names of pupils beforehand so I can surprise them when we get on Skype. The students usually prepare questions for me as well, which I answer impromptu. I always have my piano on the set, and I love to play a little something for them live!

Q3: What’s the role of the teacher in these Skype calls?

Quaver: These visits are a great way to make the teacher a hero! Without them we wouldn’t be Skyping and the students wouldn’t be learning so much about music. We always thank the teacher and have the students give them the round of applause they deserve! We LOVE teachers!

The teacher will set up the time with our team, and give us a brief introduction when the Skype conversation begins. After that, they leave it to me to do my ‘bit’ then say good bye!

Teachers interested in setting up a SKYPE visit with Quaver should contact our customer service department. Just suggest some times that might work for you, and we’ll work to set everything up. Then, it is ALL SYSTEMS GO!

Boom Chicka Boom!

I’m having a blast traveling the country via Skype!

Maybe I’ll visit your classroom in 2012?!
