Rebecca R. WinnieParticipantHey all who are interested. Back in 2011 I sent all of my TAP machines to the interested people. I have no more machines. I have had several requests again and just want there to be record on this thread that I have no more. 🙂 Thank you. RRWSeptember 5, 2015 at 8:20 am #474198
Lynnette HarperParticipantHello. I realize that this is a very old thread, but I am hoping someone can give me a song title/composer for a song in the first TAP book. It was a fun, funky piece near the beginning of the first book, as I recall. My college’s Music Dept. was trying these out, and I used them for a bit. Now – 25+ years later, I would like to know what some of the pieces were, so I can use them with a particular group of students. It may have even been the very first piece in the first book. I just remember it had a strong rhythm, and was fun. If you have any info on this, could you please let me know. Thanks!

This is fascinating. I stumbled onto this thread today.
I did my student teaching at Ingraham HS with Roger McRae and Gerald Semrau. Roger found a card reader used for learning to pronounce words…maybe at IHS library. He showed it to me and his idea of making a LOOOOOONG card to read a 4-measure rhythm. He asked me to help him make longer cards….as part of my student experience.
I studied and graduated from the U. of Washington under Rod Eichenberger’s teaching.
I now have my own company writing an marketing a very smart SIGHT-READING system: TOOLSFORCONDUCTORS.COM I have always had a passion for music literacy but never connected the dots possibly back to Roger and my time at Ingraham ( we used hymn books to teach sight-reading ).
Circling back, Dr. Geoffrey Boers (Choral Chair U. of Washington), our company and others have been working for 3 years on the new CLaS rubrics, which, it appears, may be headed for national adoption by NAfME. I am writing the sight-reading assessments.
Take a look at what we offer K-University. A very intuitive system that covers rhythm, interval training and part-singing ON ONE PAGE, and does so as an entrance activity in 4-Minutes or less.
If someone could put me in touch with Roger or Jerry Semrau I would be grateful:
