Official Music Educator Tweeters List!

Music Educators To Follow On Twitter (update 5/27/2011):

(*If you are listed here, you may use this awesome logo!)

Tweet This Link Directly (Note: You can edit the text before you send)!

This list is an important list.  I decided to start making a list of interesting and useful MUSIC EDUCATORS to follow on TWITTER.   The majority of this list is compiled of actual Music Educators, Music Professors, and Musicians that are sharing their teaching knowledge through the TWITTER medium.

If you are using TWITTER and are a Music Educator, THIS IS A MUST FOLLOW LIST.  Use it to instantly create a Music Education PLN (Personal Learning Network).  Every person on this list is an active, kind, and talented musician and educator.

Start or Add to your Twitter PLN now, by adding all of these educators:

  • The easiest way (currently) to add these all to follow is to use the following online program: –> Connect your Twitter account (via oAuth) and then add the following information when asked: “pisanojm/mused”.   You will see a “Code for America” graphic upon landing on this site.  I have used it, it does work
  • Use the TWEEPML list here (NOTE: currently in BETA again and some features are disabled and still quirky!)
  • In addition, I highly recommend adding as a column to watch in TweetDeck or HootSuite
  • NEW – You can also see this on the front page of the directly in the middle of the TOP ROW!
  • NEW – Find and link to this fast using our new short URL:

If you are interested in being placed on this list and meet the criteria to be listed, please let me know via the CONTACT page or on one of the STANDARD posts about this list on the MusTech.Net post page, or tweet me at

The Super Cool RSS feed of This List:

I finally cracked the Twitter API! If you would like an RSS subscription to the latest Tweets from the Music Educator Tweeters List use this URL:

Here is the on-going and evolving criteria (evolving) to be listed in this prestigious group:

  • Is a musician or music-related entity/group (Industry, Educator, Performer, etc.) that Tweets about relevant Music Ideas, Thoughts, Tips, or News OTHER THAN some type of CONSTANT self- promotion or group or ensemble promotion (i.e. twittering about their latest song, performance, or sales -most of the time, etc.)
  • Has at least 75 Followers, at least 300 Tweets, and is following at least 15% of their followers – the conversation can’t be a one-way street
  • Has been active on Twitter consistantly in the last 3 months and Tweets at least once a week.
  • Contributes to Twitter Events like #musedchat
  • TWEETS quite a bit about music related topics that would be of interest to most musicians. (Yes, many of their Tweets will/can still be fun, off-topic, or just “stream of consciousness”)
  • Frequently RE-TWEETS others tweets, posts, etc.
  • Promotes other music educators doing great things like the people on this list through Twitter via vehicles like #followfriday or #thankfulthursday
  • Uses their real name on Twitter and not a pseudo-name.  (This is necessary to help verify the validity of the Twitter and what they are tweeting about, etc.)
  • Does NOT Tweet anything inappropriate for students
  • Does NOT have an offensive image as their Twitter Avatar and does not have a picture of the “newbie egg” as their avatar
  • Does NOT auto-tweet a bunch of information in a “machine-gun-like” fashion, and actually creates and responds to real twitter conversation(s)

Please Note: In the end, MusTech.Net makes the decision… there may be some give and sway… meeting this criteria does not automatically mean you make the list, there may be reasons that you are not listed.  Also, this list is updated every 2-3 months, not all the time.

PLEASE be PATIENT! It is VERY important that we are aware of you and know of you to make this list.
