Music PLN

Ladies and gentlemen, I’m pleased to announce a Formal opening date for the Music Education Professional Learning Network.  After a couple of delays, I believe we are, indeed, on track to publicly open a week from today at noon!   I am very excited about the potential that this brings for the Music Education Community at large.  It is my hope that this site will continue to usher in the deluge of new collaboration among Music Educators that started withthe advent of Web 2.0 and widely available broadband connectivity.

There have been a number of great posts about the Music Education PLN made by the Launch Team and Beta Members over the past couple of weeks.   Please check these out (note ~they may show an earlier, July 16th, Launch Date –the official Launch Date is now July 19th):
