As I’ve become more active with blogging, and specifically blogging about Music Education, I have had a few opportunities open up for me. The first, of course, was when I joined Joe Pisano of MusTech.net as one of his 100 ME Bloggers in December. Another one of these opportunities has recently come up, and I am absolutely thrilled with the potential it has!
Last week, I was approached by Chad Criswell of MusicEdMagic. He sent me a Twitter message (find him at @musicedmagic) saying that has been looking to expand his writing staff, and he was wondering if I was interested in joining his staff to write about Music Education-related topics, and share my experience as a brass player and a future teacher with the site. MusicEdMagic is one of the most highly-trafficked websites for Music Education articles, so I feel truly honored to be a part of it! I will be aiming to write at least one article per week over there.
What does this mean about my Music Ed blogging here at my personal website? I will focus it mostly on personal experiences in music education, rather than the more “general” subjects I have blogged about in the past. I will try, though, to make a quick post here anytime I make a post I’m particularly proud of at MusicEdMagic. In the meantime, I would highly recommend you check out MusicEdMagic, and consider subscribing to their feed to stay updated on the latest articles on Music Education!
Oh, and be sure to check out my first post ever at MusicEdMagic, entitled “Improving Tone Quality and Musicality Through Listening” 🙂
