I’m officially announcing the #freemusicedpix Instagram & Twitter Initiative with this post and hope that many of you will join me in capturing interesting images that others may use, freely, for whatever purpose(s) that they may have a need.

Free Music Images for Music Education

What is it?

A collection of “free-to-use” images focused around the subject of “music education” that could be/are useful for inclusion in concert programs, handouts, blog posts, posting on websites, etc.

How do I participate?

Using Instagram or Twitter, simply TAG a picture with the following hashtag:


Can I use this hashtag to share these types of images with other “hashtag enabled” social media services?

Yes, absolutely!

Who is in control of this initiative?

No one.   It’s a social-media group initiative; if it’s adopted by a number of people, there is the potential to have hundreds, and thousands of images freely available in a relatively short time.  We also can’t claim exclusive use of the hashtag or stop it from being used for other purposes either… it’s inherent to the nature of all social media hashtags.

Who can participate in this initiative?

How can I embed that way-cool widget above this line?

Visit http://snapwidget.com and get your own iframe code for your website or blog.

What about the quality of these images (resolution)?

Instagram limits the overall quality of images taken; however, they still should be good enough for many applications.  There are also many ways to make your own pictures available to other at highere resolutions as well.  Get creative. 

I have some ideas and questions about this initiative.
