Files & Folders

  • YOU should create the folder structure for your building

    • Students should not be making folders except on their H: drive

  • Use Naming Standards for both folders & files

    • The names should at least make sense

Elementary music software

Elementary Music Software

  • Recently completed installation of MusicAce Maestro, and Jamtrax.

  • MusicAce Maestro is network based music/keyboard software installed on the Xtenda’s in each elementary music classroom. The managerial software is installed on each teacher computer.

  • Jamtrax is a program that allows you to arrange “loops” of sampled music to create original compositions. Students can also record their own voice along with the composition. These compositions can then be saved on to a CD and distributed freely.

Cd playback

CD Playback

  • New CD players typically play many formats including .mp3, .wav, .wma (windows media audio), just to name a few.

  • Older CD players will typically only play audio CD’s, mostly because the other formats were too new or not yet invented.
