Teach-a-Tune Series

The GIML Media and Communications commission is proud to present the new Teach-a-Tune series! Each month, we will have one GIML member share a video of themself teaching a tune in a (hopefully) fun tonality and/or meter. The presenter will share their tune, and then teach it to us and provide us with musicking opportunities.

Our first presenter is Robin Giebelhausen ( She shares her song "Here Again". Listen, move, audiate, and sing with her as she teaches her tune to you. At the end, she'll even show you how to play it on the ukulele!

If you would like to share a tune in future months, please upload your video to YouTube, and share it with the Media Commission (

Donation Matching Campaign

We are excited to announce a new matching campaign that will help GIML enhance our online teaching tools and materials. Through a generous donation from Pam Gordon Bunte (daughter of Edwin Gordon), we will be matching all donations to GIML dollar for dollar up to $1,000 total, from now until December 31st. All funds will be used to create professionally edited recordings of music learning theory-focused teaching and online professional development materials, which will then be provided to GIML members at no cost via our new website. This project will allow us to create a robust collection of materials for all GIML members to enjoy!
