Hello! My name is Sam Goodman. I teach General Music to grades K-6 at Thomson Elementary in Arvada, Colorado. I received my Bachelor's in Music Education from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2013. In 2010, I started composing electronic music with the software Ableton Live. Shortly after working with Live, I realized the potential that it possessed in the realm of music education. In the Spring of 2016, I partnered with Ableton through their "Push Initiative". This program granted Thomson's music program with 16 electronic instruments; the Ableton Push. Since implementing Ableton products in my classroom, I have seen a great increase in creativity as well as student engagement. My goal is to create and spread curricular ideas and resources in order to reveal the significant benefits of teaching with Live and Push!
