Know any music education bloggers?
I've been following with great interest Joseph
Pisano's year-long quest
to identify (or spark the creation of) 100 music
education blogs by January 2009 (I blogged about it back in
March). He has been diligently updating the list as it has grown throughout
the year. He's up to 95
music education bloggers. If you know of anyone with a music education blog
who's not on Joseph's list (or who might be a good candidate to start one),
please send him or her his way. He's got 30 days left and just 5 more blogs to
I think this is a great project and would love to see similar efforts in
other subject areas. Joseph's list already is on the Moving Forward wiki. If it
helps, I will be happy to help promote other initiatives like this one!
