Music Education in the News: I enjoy reading blogs, especially those about music. One such blog I frequent is maintained by Dr. James Frankel, an instrumental and general music teacher in New Jersey. His blog is a good place to find information on current news and trends in music technology and how teachers can use it in their classrooms. Another blog I recently discovered is maintained and co-authored by Prof. Joseph Pisano. Here he posts about topics that relates to music technology or other forms of electronic technologies. Being not so tech-savvy myself, I find both blogs very informative.
This Day in Music History: 1993 - The theme for the Disney animated movie "Aladdin" (A Whole New World) received an Academy Award for best song.
