MusicEdMajor.Net was founded by Andy Zweibel in the summer of 2009. Inspired by many music education blogs that were already established, Andy created this site to provide resources, tips and experiences with his fellow music education majors. Initially conceived as a podcast, Andy’s idea quickly became this website as he realized the volume of information that could be shared, and blogging seemed to be the most effective route.
