SafeShareTV takes YouTube links and eliminates the distractions of related videos, autoplay, and best of all, NO ADS! This is why some sort of safe-viewer is recommended in the classroom. I have also made sure to edit the videos to crop out any unnecessary beginning time (like applause) so you get right to the music after clicking the link.
Although these bulletin board sets are mainly used for decoration, many teachers like to use them as digital instruction material on the projector or SMARTboard. When opening the Famous Compositions page, click any of the composition titles to be taken to a video of the piece.
Please make sure your district does not block YouTube or SafeShareTV before attempting to access the video links in your classroom. Please note that the download does not contain actual video and audio files. All videos are internet-based. Links are clickable in PDF files only and are found in the Famous Compositions page unless specified otherwise.
To see if your institution allows SafeShareTV, (from your institution’s technology) click the link below to test the connection.
If your institution happens to block SafeShareTV and you would like to still access the videos, SafeShareTV does have a download option available. To do this, you would still need to access the link from a location where SafeShareTV is not blocked.
Please note that not all Composer of the Month sets have a photo included with the package. I only use public domain images in my COTM sets, so if a photo is not available to me, I will not include it within the file.
If I have a Composer of the Month set you would like to purchase without a photo of a composer, you are more than welcome to use my blank PDF and JPEG files in Word, PowerPoint, or some other word or presentation software to insert a composer photo of your choice. (Personal/Educational use only, no Commercial)
Borderless printing is recommended if your printer has this capability. All images are high quality and look best when printed in best quality settings. Laminate the pages to have them lasting for years.
If you have trouble printing the PDF version of the files, please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe PDF Reader by clicking here.
