John Jacobson, now a bonafide YouTube sensation, will be at the TMEA convention on Friday, February 11th to speak about his new publication written in collaboration with Cristi Cary Miller, Order from Chaos.
Incorporating tidbits from the book, Jacobson will show you how to embrace the chaos, discuss the importance of having a plan, highlight how to get and keep your students’ attention and more!
Then, shortly after his session, John will be in the Pender’s Booth, from 5pm to 6pm. It’ll be a great time for you meet with him further — and have him sign a copy of his book, too!

In the meantime, did you see John’s debut on the Ellen DeGeneres show? For Ellen’s birthday, he went to the show’s studio and taught her staff the routine to “Double Dream Hands” (aka Planet Rock by Jacobson & Huff). He then led them in a surprise performance that was aired on January 26, 2011. John and his routine has garnered quite a following: it has been recreated, spoofed and posted many, many times on YouTube.
Elementary Music Mondays, the series, will post to www.pendersbuzz.com a couple of times a month, with information from our staff, our publisher partners, guest bloggers and more. Come back to this site, or access it from our main Home Page, to find out the latest buzz!
