Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Year Ye! I have a number of announcements that have started to pile up and I’ve decided to condense them all into this Grand Announcement post:
TI:ME PA Conference at West Chester, Pa on April 5th, 2008:
If you are a PA person or live remotely close to West Chester, PA you will want to make it over to West Chester PA for the FIRST annual PA TI:ME conference. A number of great presenters will be there, including ME Blogger Dr. Tom Rudolph and the keynote presentation will be given by our good Friend, and ALSO ME Blogger, Dr. James Frankel.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to make this VERY CLOSE TO ME and SEMINAL conference because I’m conducting the college Jazz Ensemble that very day, here, in Grove City.
PMEA State Conference at Hershey, PA between April 16th and 19th, 2008:
If you live near Hershey, PA, and you love music and chocolate, you need to come to the PA state conference at Hershey. Like last year, it will be held at the Hershey/Grand Lodge Convention Center located in downtown Hershey, PA.
I will be hosting the Grove City College Music booth along with Dr. Edwin Arnold and other distinguished folks from Grove City. Please feel free to stop by and chat, grab a pin, and learn about all the things that I’ve “got up my sleeve”!
Like any state conference there will be dozens of things to see, hear, and do. You can find the full list here: http://pmea.net/conference.html Again, good friend and colleague, Dr. Tom Rudolph will be performing a number of technology related clinics.
If you are a ME blogger and are hosting something at the PA conference, please let us know! If you are hosting something at the PA conference and not a ME Blogger, PLEASE JOIN OUR CAMPAIGN TODAY! Seriously, where else can you get this kind of press so easily? ;)

Mustech.net will be MOVING to a new server. We are no longer able to handle CPU requests from this site and our other sites on our current SHARED HOST. I am transitioning to a VPS (Virtual Private Server) that promises to give us the speed, connectivity, and bandwidth that these IMPORTANT Music, and Music related sites need to function properly.
Plan on some brief outages, and funny website stuff happening here in the coming two weeks! I will be blogging extensively about the advantages of a VPS along with encoding a special podcast from an expert in the broadband connectivity field in the very future! Stay tuned. Speaking of cliffhangers…
AND… [Serious Cliffhanger Warning/Alert!] ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE ME BLOGGERS MAKE SURE YOU CHECK IN AT MUSTECH.NET FOR AN AMAZING POST TOMORROW ABOUT A FREE GIFT TO YOU AS PART OF A JOINT COLLOBORATION BETWEEN MUSTECH.NET AND THE NAXOS ONLINE MUSIC LIBRARY!
