The Music Education Blog Carnival Music Education by Joel Wagner - June 17, 2008July 1, 20104 On July 1st, 2008 the very first Music Education Blog Carnival was featured on So You Want To Teach? This is something that Joseph Pisano over at MusTech.Net and I had been discussing for a couple of months, and we finally got around to starting it up. What is it? Much like the Carnival of Education, the Music Education Blog Carnival features blog articles from around the blogosphere. These articles all focus on music education and topics that might remotely be interesting to music educators. What do I do? I want to encourage anyone who has an article somewhere in their blog’s archives that might relate to submit it. It doesn’t have to be a recent article even. If you have a great article (like this one) that is somehow buried in the archives (or this one) of your blog that might relate, dig it out, dust it off, and submit it. How do I submit? Simply go to the handy submission form. Plug in the URL for the blog post, most of the stuff will fill in automatically. Get the stuff all done, submit, and you’re good to go!

Check out A (Partial) History of Music Education Blogging Joel WagnerJoel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.
