Carnival of Music Blogs

photo credit: joiseyshowaa

I hope our readers will visit the articles below from the latest Music Education Carnival of Blogs list. Be sure to read Owen Bradley's post about his feelings toward 'non-traditional' students after seeing the film August Rush. Travis J. Weller also has an interesting take on the Grammy's and Leo Park has suggests creating a Musically Inclined Dictionary to help students build a vocabulary that will allow for 'mature, well thought out, articulate, and eloquent written and oral communication of music commentary'.

Thanks Helan - this is part of a neat community of educators. I always find interesting articles and ideas among this group. Our views are most often a little radical, but none the less, we have been embraced and in fact will be hosting the next carnival of blogs. Thanks for reading and thanks for the nice note.
