Must-Read Music Tech Books for the Holidays

Our theme for this month is on the blog and podcast is holiday professional development for teachers AND back to school ideas since most of you in the northern hemisphere are on your extended summer break.

In the previous episode – number 81 – I shared some free online professional development opportunities that you can pursue at any time of the year. In this episode I share some of my must-read books for music technology in education.

If you’re interested in any of the books I talk about during the episode, you can find the links below.
