My friend Pat Ryan was telling me about a six lecture series she is doing at Regina Public Library. As I thought about similar courses I had taught I recalled how often I wished there was time to explore more aspects of these lassons. Here is one idea to supplement the regulr course classes.
My previous post supplies a partial answer. If my students could down load a supplemental lecture for $1.99 from lulu at http://music.lulu.com/category/303 and access a copy of that lecture handout, they could learn a bit more on select topics from great speakers.
How would you get that handout? Write to the speaker and ask for a copy and permission to print enough for the class- lets say, 17 students. Offer to pay for thev right to use, then build it into the class fee.
