In just a few weeks the first International Music Education Summit will take place.  It’s a 3-day conference which is purely online – there’s no travel involved, no hotel accommodation to pay for and you can “attend” in your PJs. Founder of IMES Elisa Janson Jones tells me why she decided to launch the event and how she fits it in around her job as a full-time K-8 elementary music teacher, band conductor, and host of the Music Ed Mentor podcast.

The Midnight Music Community (MMC) is an online space for music teachers interested in learning more about music technology.  There are online courses, lesson plans and lots of other resources for Chromebooks, iPads, Macs and PCs. Professional development certificates are available for all training undertaken by MMC members and I am in the Community everyday, personally answering questions and offering advice to members.
