Keith Mason and I had a great conversation on his show over at his great podcast site, Music Tech for Me.
Music Tech For Me is a audio podcast site. Kieth is one of the only Music Education Bloggers that is religious with regard to his posting. You can find a new episode on the 1st and 15th of every month. His topics are always related to music, education, and technology and I would encourage all of our readers to check it out.
Keith and I had a laid-back conversation about some of the things I’m doing and involved in with regard to music education and music technology:
- Admissions at the College level with regard to music
- The Grove City College Music Dept. and Ensembles
- Being a musician that is fluent in technology
- The new layout at MusTech.net
- Keith Mason as the ultimate Music Education Podcaster
- A couple of non-music website that I visit and like
- The MusTech.Net Podcast
