Interactive Whiteboard workshops

Hi All

Kevin O’Mara (on the computer in the picture) and I have just completed a very rewarding series of workshops for iJam. We went to Sydney, Brisbane and Perth, workshopping Music Room, Dance Room and The Interactive Music Room. It is always important to us to get out there and work with teachers and we are always excited to hear what they are doing in their schools. Australia is certainly blessed with enthusiastic and creative music teachers. We made many friends, renewed a few old acquaintances and have brought back a swag of ideas and suggestions. Thank you Drew and Jasmine of iJam and a huge thanks to all the teachers.

And here I must send our special thanks to the people and companies that provided Interactive Whiteboards for the workshops.

In Sydney – Patrick McComish of Command Integration (;
in Brisbane – Glenn Searle of Envisage Training (;
in Perth – Allan Bowes (pictured) of Tecsound (

These guys have all your Interactive Whiteboard questions covered and are well worth a call. They’ll certainly look after you.

See you next time
