New Initiative

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 will be the Carole King of GIML.....the inimitable Beth Bolton! Keep an eye out in the November edition of this missive to see the inaugural Teach-a-Tune video!

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!
