Musicnet Summary 18 Feb 2017

  • Public
By MartinEmo



Kia ora tātou,


Good morning Musicnet! At the end of 2016 many of you contributed to a survey about this online community. It was a great insight into how you use this email list, and provided some great feedback on how to make it even better.

So for the next few weeks I’ll be including two pointers per summary.


Subject Lines

A carefully crafted subject line that includes pertinent facts allows busy readers to read it, keep it or delete it!

Eg. “Level 3 Composition Query” or “New Plymouth Primary PD Day”

instead of “FW Re Perf” or “Piano”

Begin a new thread if it’s a new topic.


Replying to threads and contacting members

Musicnet is an email list, and by pressing ‘reply’ it sends a message to everybody, all 1326 members. (After I have read it)

To reply directly to a member, look in the ‘Sent From’ address at the top of the email. It usually says something similar to musicnet-request@lists.tki.org.nz on behalf of Pino PalladinoRight clicking the name will often bring up the email address.


If you include your email address in the body of your email then it makes it even easier for people to contact you. Particularly if your message requires teachers to contact you.


Summary to 18 Feb 2017

General (for all Music Levels)


Primary/Intermediate/Lower Secondary  




Professional Development/Concerts/Competitions





As always, this summary will be uploaded to the Musicnet VLN Blog and our Twitter feed @ArtsOnline1. To access any of the threads on the Arts Online website archive simply type the username “artsonline” and the password “mailinglist” to do this.
