It’s almost time for another Music Education Blog Carnival. This carnival will be hosted right here at MusTech.net. Although I’ve been very active with both music and education the past weeks, I haven’t been posting as much due to all of the concerts and clinics I’ve been performing and presenting in the PA area. I’m hoping (and have been hoping this whole year!) to get back into a more regular posting routine very soon! You can always check my concert, presentation, and event schedule(s) at the bottom left footer portion of this blog.
I will be updating the Main Music Carnival Page today. If you are interesated in submitting a post or article for this month’s Music Education Blog Carnival, please visit our Music Carnival homepage for more information: http://mustech.net/projects/muscarn
