This list is an important list. This is a reviewed list of interesting and useful MUSIC EDUCATORS to follow on TWITTER. This list was created so that a legitimate list of music educators who implement Twitter could be catalogued and easily found by those looking to “add topic specific” people to follow using the Twitter medium. The majority of this list is compiled of actual Music Educators, Music Professors, and Musicians that are sharing their teaching knowledge through the use of TWITTER.
If you know of any educator or musician that posts frequently via Twitter about music education related topics please let me know by sending me a tweet at @pisanojm (http://twitter.com/pisanojm). Please make sure that you check out the criteria for being included on this list first:
