It is my distinct pleasure to present to you the 14th Edition of the Music Education Blog Carnival! This post will highlight the best and brightest in blog posts from the month of April. There were many fantastic submissions this month, and you can find them below. This is the last edition of the Carnival for the 2009-2010 school year; we will resume posting with an issue in September. In the meantime, consider checking out the main landing page for the Music Education Blog Carnival over at MusTech.net. Enjoy reading, and be sure to share this post with any fellow music educators (or future music educators!) you know!
Zoe Toft presents Stories in tune – The Magic Flute; Part 1 posted at Playing by the book, saying, “I’m not a music educator per se but a mum who wants to introduce my young kids to more classical music and so I’ve started a series called Stories in Tune where I review picture book versions of classical music pieces and write up the play and response they inspire in my children.”
