What is the Music Education Blog Carnival?
~The new Music Education Blog Carnival was created and is maintained by Dr. Joseph Pisano of MusTech.net. Its function is to promote the great work being done by Music Education Bloggers across the Internet. The carnival seeks to provide a free online avenue that provides useful Music Education materials and information to the Internet community while providing greater exposure for those writing these great blogs.
The Music Education Blog Carnival is published during the first week of every month and is a recognized member of the communities of blogs as indexed by BlogCarnival.com. All writings submitted to the Music Education Blog Carnival are examined to ensure that they are valid, interesting, and related to our discussion topic(s). Not every entry submitted for consideration is selected to be in the various editions.
