Welcome to the December 2008 Music Education Carnival of Blogs

At Discover, Learn, Play we are very excited and honored to be hosting this edition of the Music Education Blog Carnival! We hope you'll take a moment to get to know us, read some of our posts, leave a comment and drop by now and again to stay in touch.

Submissions for this December Carnival began finding my mailbox bright and early on Monday morning, November 3. We had no sooner started changing the clocks to Daylight Savings time when the first 'ding' arrived from 'One Family's Blog' offering a 'Comparative Review' of Yamaha digital pianos. And I thought I was prolific! This blog covers so many topics that it had my head swimming. The final post came in just under the gun mere moments ago. Posts, authors and home pages are listed below in order of their arrival.

PS check out the music education blogger time-line compiled by Joel at So You Want to Teach? - it's very cool and you just might see your blog and name in print!

Special thanks to Dr. Joe Pisano at MusTech.Net for all of his hard work and for this opportunity. Please be sure to 'actively participate' in this global conversation, comment on posts that you find interesting and above all, tell your friends about the Carnival. Enjoy!
