Check out this great story from The Pocahontas Times in Green Bank, West Virginia featuring two Quaver teachers!
Music educator Greg Morgan of Green Bank Elementary School first discovered Quaver at the West Virginia Music Educator’s Association Convention last year.
He took the news back to his board of education and has since replaced 20-year-old textbooks with Quaver’s all-digital curriculum. Mr. Morgan – and his students! – love using Quaver in their classroom.
Morgan said he enjoys the program because it engages the students to learn through doing and gives them the opportunity to create their own sound.
“One of the things they want us to try to get students to do, and what we did really easy [in this improvisation activity], is create things,” he said. “They created their own little beat there. They are more engaged.”
I use it with kindergarten through fourth grade. I can create classes and I could do a class online and give them homework if I wanted. They have free access to the program.
Just down the road in Pocahontas County, music teacher Rick McLaughlin is also using Quaver to help teach students at Marlinton Elementary School.
