“YouTube in Music Education”

Founded in 2005, YouTube has revolutionized the way information is shared through video on the internet.  The first complete music educators’ guide to harnessing the power of YouTube for students, YouTube in Music Education teaches instructors how to tap into the excitement of YouTube with students by creating, posting, and promoting videos on the most popular media service in the world.  Explaining how to record and edit videos, add effects, and upload content, Dr. Tom Rudolph and Dr. James Frankel describe everything from the basics of video production to advanced applications for use in the classroom.

The authors explain how teachers can use YouTube privately with their students and integrate it with websites and blogs.  Educators can use YouTube for applications that include creating instrument and software tutorials, evaluating group and individual performances, sharing content with students, and many other uses.  This book includes more than 50 strategies for integrating YouTube into the music curriculum and tutorials on video and audio production and preparing and uploading content.

  1. Hello,

    My school district(Toledo City Schools) does not allow access to YouTube on our computers. Any suggestions that I could present to our board of education? Thanks!


    • Robert,
      Chapter 8 of the book is actually “What To Do if Your School Blocks YouTube.” It covers many topics including how to request access on specific computers or for specific users, how to access YouTube through a proxy server, other YouTube alternatives for educators, and how to download/manipulate videos for offline use.

      You can learn more at the YouTube channel set up to be a companion to the book at http://www.youtube.com/musicclassroom
