Welcome to the new Piano Pedagogy Message Board!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread
In searching for a new home for the Piano Pedagogy Board, I looked at a lot of message board hosts. None of them was "just perfect", but the new host I chose seems to have a lot of advantages:
* You can immediately find both new questions AND new answers (which may have been posted to very old questions)
* You can receive email notices of responses to your questions.
* You can receive daily or weekly email summaries of activity on the board.
* Old messages (both questions and answers) will be stored indefinitely (the previous board had a limit of 300 threads--older threads were simply deleted).
* Old messages can be sorted by category so that relevant messages can be found more easily.
* The board and underlying software is hosted by a person with an intense personal interest in the internet and community systems such as the bulletin board (and I've an idea that Philip Greenspun is going to be around a lot longer than a lot internet startups with a 'great idea' and no particular business plan).
* Since it is not hosted by a commercial entity, there are no annoying ads.
So, welcome to the new message board! Please bookmark this URL for the Piano Pedagogy Message Board: http://www.sunflower.org/~bhugh/messageboard.spm

Thank you, Brent, for going to so much trouble to make this happen for all of us. Sometimes when I click on to the messageboard for the 3rd time that day I tell myself a should get a life; but even with a great family (especially my precious granddaughter and another on the way), home to keep up, tennis, 45 students, and PIANIMALS, this group adds something I don't get anywhere else, and I love it! I get MUCH MORE than I could ever give. Sometimes I am annoyed by a perspective that is crossways with mine--but perhaps that is what I come for the most (because I learn), even though it's more enjoyable when others agree with me.
So here's to an even better messageboard--and my thanks to you for being the moderator!!!

Dear Professor Hugh -
Thank you SO much for finding a new board! I was just getting into the old one shortly before its demise. I'm glad we still have a place to come to with our questions and answers.

I really appreciate the "no ads" feature. The ones that flash over and over tend to make me very grumpy. As a student and beginning teacher, this board is a valuable resource. I appreciate it very much.
