How to Watch

On TV: Available on Roku and Apple TV 4—download the FloSports app now.

Streaming: Only on FloVoice with a PRO subscription. A yearly PRO subscription provides access to ALL FloSports sites. JOIN NOW

1. Watch on Roku or AppleTV 4.

My personal preference for game-watching is my Roku—and AppleTV 4 works just the same. Simply download the FloSports app, login—or register if you're a first-timer—and voila. Every game is at your fingertips.

2. Watch with Chromecast.

This nifty little Google device is about the size of a flash drive and plugs into the USB port on the back of your television. Once installed, you can project virtually anything from the Google Chrome browser on your computer to your television—including the FloVoice event you can't live without.

3. Watch on your computer.

This option is perfect for watching the big event when you're away from home. Whether you're traveling, working—or just stuck at your great aunt Irma's without an adequate TV situation—we've got you covered at FloVoice.com. You can also try plugging your computer into your TV via HDMI cord to watch on the big screen.

4. Watch on your tablet or iPhone.

Again, when you're away from home or unable to get to a television, we make life easy. All FloVoice events are live streamed via mobile web or on tablets.

Incorporating pop music into traditional music education is a hot topic for school teachers as of late.

In fact, some of the best musicians out there, pop or not, have a deep history with classical and traditional styles.

Seniors Will Shine At 2019 Midwinter Convention #BHSOpry

There have been a deluge of studies lately proclaiming the benefits of music.
