    Hey everybody, Adam here. Grier and I are going to turn this into a presentation at IMEA next year (hopefully). I would love to get your feedback as to what specific information you would want to glean from a workshop related to electronic music.

    Feel free to comment here, e-mail me, or leave a comment on my blog. Seriously, I thrive on constructive criticism and brainstormed ideas. Hit me.

    This is incredible! I WISH I could even think about implementing something like this at our school. We have no technology and no budget. This is brilliant though. I struggle with keeping Middle School and up students interested in music and I know this would do it. I’d love to see your presentation – hopefully it will be on youtube at some point. I think the software is many times the stumbling block for teachers. The learning curve can seem so steep especially for us ‘techno’ challenged adults. Specific information on how to learn the different software, resources on curricula etc. would be fantastic!
