Flipping Guitar

We've got pockets around the school where teachers are experimenting with flipping the classroom.  Tony Ackerman, our amazing guitar teacher, is using the power of video to differentiate during class.  While he is working with one group of students, he sends another group out into the hallway with their laptops and a pre-recorded lesson tailored to their skill level.  In this way he is able to meet the needs of each of his diverse learners.

The videos are so good, that even someone as tone-deaf as me could learn from them. You'll have to excuse me - I'm off to buy a guitar.
