Summary of Musicnet to 14 May 2017



Kia ora tātou,


Musicnet is just one part of the Arts Online community. Like many of you in your schools, we work with other Arts disciplines to support each other. The latest Arts Online Newsletter was published this week. Past newsletters are found on this page here, along with a signup box on the left to get them straight into your inbox. This month includes an article on ‘STEAM not STEM’, ‘Why Andy Warhol should be made a saint’, and how a morse-code message was incorporated into a pop song in Colombia.


Summary to 14 May 2017

General (for all Music Levels)

  • Contributions for the next MENZA Tune Me In Magazine are being sought. Do you have something you want to share from your school or area? Email Amy this week.

  • More ways to add text to video were shared.  

  • A short pros and cons discussion of various cheap DAW (Digital Audio Workstations) software.
