This last week I spent time supporting teachers in developing their Music technology skills. They took time out of their busy day, to assess what they are doing, and what they could be doing in the future. Some spoke of the great support that Musicnet is to them, particularly if they’re in an isolated town. Do you know of a music teacher who isn’t on this list? Get them to sign up www.bit.ly/subscribemusicnet. Also the more members we have, and the more active the list is then the breadth and depth of knowledge that can be drawn on is increased. Additionally, regular reports are written and shared with the Ministry of Education to continue the justification of funding this list.
