It started with a newsletter!
The Music Ed digital magazine started out as a newsletter that we, Gentle Guitar™ school, wanted to circulate among our teachers and students.
We wanted to ‘fill-in-the-gaps’ on important topics that come up again and again during the music lessons and at home. We wanted to provide support to our students and teachers, and remind our musical family why we are teaching and learning music in the first place!
Once the first drafts were in place, we saw that what we had created has value to a much larger music community.
Regardless of what instrument is being taught/studied, all over the world, parents, students and teachers are struggling with very similar things.
We decided to turn our knowledge and experience into a quarterly digital publication that could be read and enjoyed beyond our Gentle Guitar™ family.
