  4. Here is my link suggestion:
    Listen to 78 rpm records, transcribed in Streaming Audio – website also provides background information, illustrated with photo’s and record labels.
    All recordings are reproduced in good quality from the collection of Jan Hovers, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    • Jan, many thanks for this excellent link!
      I’ve briefly visited all 10 floors and listened to a few of your amazing vintage recordings. How wonderful to hear the trombone recording from 1937 of Tommy Dorsey’s ‘I’m getting sentimental over you’, and many more!
      Your link will be included on Tanbur with the next update. Thanks again.

      • Dear David,
        Thanks for your prompt reply and your kind words about my website. Maybe it will be of interest for young kids to find out that there were other round-shaped playable ‘things’ before the invention of the Compact Disc 😉
        I appreciate it very much that you will include the link in your next update and that you took the time to browse my virtual warehouse. I wish you all the best in your good work.
        With best regards from Amsterdam,

  5. Hello,

    I’m a musician, private teacher and software developer and appreciate the music education community.

    I want to let you know about some iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad apps for trumpet/french horn/trombone players. I believe these apps can help with finger and slide positions as well as helping the student learn scales and chords. They are only meant to supplement practice and are NOT a SUBSTITUTE for actual practice. I envision it helping the brass playing student when the instrument is not available or when waiting in line for the bus, etc. It’s actually fun as the student is scored for accuracy and speed and can share his results with others.

    The apps and video tutorials are available on the following sites:



  6. I played on the dot mixer and the virtual keyboard i also did a couple of quizzes. They were fun

  7. i played the dot mixer it was ok.I listened to some songs nd sung along quite fun

  8. I thought of your site in my effort to promote Universal Music Classic’s artist, Time For Three, and their newly released video for the track, “Stronger,” featured below. The video highly emphasizes the power of music education and the strong sentiment of anti bullying.

    If you could help by sharing the link, we could offer a promotional cd giveaway of the trio’s new self-titled album for your followers. Please let me know if this is something you might be interested in, or if you have any other ideas on a potential collaboration.

    Here is a link to the group’s site.

    • Wow! Bullying is such an important issue for secondary school students. This Time For Three video will be a valuable resource for PSHE teachers and I would recommend that you post information in this space:
      Please note that youtube videos are usually blocked on student login and for this reason they are not promoted on the Tanbur Music Education Links website. I will be happy to promote a video that does not use youtube or any similar filtered resource.

  9. Can you post some info that it is free to create music and sing over tracks using audacity free recording studio from audacity website….using computer/laptop/phone…
    backing music and samples are free from record and sing over..

    • Many thanks for commenting. You’re right that Audacity can do this for you. Have you tried looking for an Audacity forum with ideas from others that have used it? Have you tried this online Audacity manual?
