Congratulations to our November Pin It to Win It Winner - Michael Vincent!

We are pleased to announce our December winner for our Pin It To Win It contest! A big congrats to Michael Vincent - a first year music teacher in Arkansas. What first struck us about Michael's Pinterest board is the short write-up describing his position as a music teacher:

"I am a first year teacher in a school in Arkansas where I teach band, choir, and general music! We may not have a ton of supplies but we have a lot of great musical students. I love West Music products and have found great success with students using these quality products! I think a zip code should not define a student's education and especially should not limit a student's musical experiences!"

Michael then proceeded to fill his board with a variety of West Music products, lesson ideas, and classroom practices. Most notable was the variety in pins - he included mariachi instruments, print music, and movement materials. We hope Michael can continue his hard work in the classroom and continue to inspire his students with a $100 West Music gift certificate!

Let's change things up for this month - show us your classroom plans and inspirations for the holidays! How do you incorporate the holidays into your music classroom or therapy sessions and what do your students like to do? Let us know! Make sure to check out our "Holidays in the Classroom" board on Pinterest - it's full of lesson plans, class activities, and crafts to keep your students focused on music and motivated to learn during the holiday season.

Here's how to play:

  1. Sign up for a free account at www.pinterest.com
  2. Create a board titled "West Music Inspires My Class"
  3. Pin images of your classroom inspirations, include favorite instruments, products, books, lesson plans, activities and more!
  4. Under each pin, include the hashtags #WestMusic and #InspireMyClass
  5. When your board is complete, post a comment on our "Inspire My Class" pinboard at pinterest.com/westmusic

The West Music panel of judges will choose one winner a month, based on creativity and variety of products. We are running this contest until the end of May 2013. The winner will be announced each month in our monthly e-newsletter and receive a $100 West Music Gift Certificate. Ready, Set, PIN! Happy Holidays everyone!
