I am extremely excited to announce that Prof. V. Keith Mason and myself have partnered and will be jointly creating this school year’s podcasts! The First is Live!
“Welcome to episode #53 of Music Tech for ME. After a year delay, the Music Tech for ME podcast is back. I’m so excited to be back on-line with new, and I hope improved, podcast episodes. As before, topics will cover music, music technology, and music education. The BIG new addition to the show… I now have a co-host. Joe Pisano from MusTech.net will be my regular co-host for all episodes. Joe and I have been discussing this for several months. We are looking forward to working together in bringing you some of the best content we can find. This first show covers some introductions along with some info about Joe’s new service (MusicPLN) and the upcoming ATMI 2010 National Conference (Sept. 23-26,2010 in Minneapolis, MN). Blessings!”
