What's On Your Desk? and 12 Days of Christmas {Music} Giveaways!

Rachel Tanenblatt over at Music With Mrs. Tanenblatt is doing a linky party to show what is on your desk at the moment.   I must give a disclaimer before viewing - it is not a pretty sight!  I always have the "stack" on my desk - its where I pile all things I need but don't want to deal with.  I have the "stack" at home too.  It appears to be about to topple off my desk in this pic.

Also, please note my favorite desk item during December - my USB-powered Christmas tree.  He blinks and is so cute and makes me happy all day.  My trusty dusty MacBook Pro is always up - going on 5 years, I love him and hope he keeps on trucking for many more years.  It is a District-owned computer from a time period when the music departments got to pilot Mac products in music.  If and when it dies, I will get a crappy Dell so I am coddling him to keep working as long as I can!

Also please note iPad #4 in the bottom left corner - he is out of commission and won't get onto my classroom iPads' iTunes account - I've been troubleshooting for 2 or 3 days without any enlightenment.
Thanks, Rachel, for the link-up!  Its fun to blog about something not so music-ful!

  3. Is it true that you are not kidding about finding a decent music school and instructor? The vast majority just ask two inquiries which are truly absolutely unimportant to your best advantage with regards to getting a decent instruction. economics tuition singapore
