I’d like to take a moment (and a post) to highlight a number of recent, and fantastic, articles on MusTech.Net authored by Amy M. Burns. Amy is at the forefront of elementary music education and using technology in the general music education classroom – I dare say (and with all honesty) -at the top of the field and THE emerging authority on iPad in Elementary Music. If you are looking for ideas about how to integrate iPad (iOS) technology with your music education curriculum and lessons, Amy’s posts will “catapult” you to the “top of the class” and save you weeks, maybe even months, of research…
Amy is a frequent clinician at Music Education Association around the country -if you ever have the chance to see her “live”, don’t miss it!
