Web/Communication Tools

The internet provides some fantastic opportunities to support and enhance music education.  Below are descriptions of some of the tools we will be using in band.

Web Tools to be used in band this year:

  1. Remind

If you come across a cool web tool that could be used for band or music, let Mr. Langston know at mrlangston@me.com!!!

 

Remind (formerly Remind101)

Remind provides a safe way for teachers to text message students and stay in touch with parents for free.

Teachers use remind101.com, the Android app or the iOS app to send texts to students and parents phones without ever having to

share their own phone number.  Students and parents also never have to share their phone number with teachers. Ever.

To sign up for your student’s Remind101 feed of notifications, use the following codes on your mobile phone:

All classes: send a text to this number: 81010

Then, send the code for the class you want to follow as a text message:

  • Beginning Band: @mmsbb
  • Symphonic Band: @mmssb
  • Wind Ensemble: @mmswind
  • Jazz Band: @mmsjazzb
