Executive Director June Kinoshita is our impassioned visionary. She brought Hyperscore back through Kickstarter and private donors so that everyone in the world with access to a device and the internet could make music. Chief Technology Officer Peter Torpey used Hyperscore before he ever came to the MIT Media Lab and became the wizard behind the curtain. Peter implements updates and improvements, moving the software to the Web while also guiding the construction of the Educator Version.
As Director of Education, I got to use my passion for, and knowledge of, 15 years of Hyperscore in the classroom to guide the web-based Beta pilot. Currently, I assist teachers, write National Core Arts Standards curriculum, suggest ideas to Peter, sing the praises of Hyperscore on social media and assist June in letting the world know it’s out there at Conventions.
How may we assist you?
We have covered a range of topics in our previous Office Hours, and are always open to discuss whatever our users may have questions about. To name a few examples, in our first session in August, I worked with a former student teacher. She will be implementing Hyperscore across her K-8 classes to build a spiral curriculum base for the National Core Arts Standards lessons I am writing. We will be posting these on our Resources for Educators page and hope to see them in our MusicFirst Hyperscore Classroom. In September, we focused on the “inverted pedagogy” philosophy that undergirds Hyperscore’s role in the classroom. Our October meeting featured Patrick Esarey, a masters student in music therapy at the University of Iowa, who shared the findings from his pilot study of Hyperscore in third grade classrooms and discussed ideas for future research.
By all means, please let me know what you would like to discuss in future Hyperscore Office Hours. We will start with any general questions at the beginning of the hour if you are unable to stay for the discussions portion. Consider joining our Facebook discussion page, “Teaching Hyperscore: Let’s Discuss” to keep the conversation going! Happy composing, and we hope to see you at Office Hours.
