Providing a link to the real world attributes of geography and topography can be very beneficial through Google Earth. Several tutorials exist to help you and the Google Earth application can be downloaded from http://earth.google.com.
Google Earth in the Music Classroom shows the basics of how to get started. It is available for download in both pdf and as a slideshow.
Have ideas as to how else Google Earth might be used in the music classroom? Is this just technology for the sake of technology, or are there some real advantages to using this type of program?
