Dear Jennifer and list,

The JMTP website has had a few implementation delays, but we are in the 
final stages of testing and expect to go live in May. We are still 
gladly accepting submissions including e-articles (more compact, 
media-rich counterparts to the Journal's print articles) video teaching 
demonstrations, sample analyses, syllabi, assignments, and any other 
resources that may be helpful for theory teachers at all levels, 
including high school, undergraduate and graduate. All submissions are 
peer-reviewed, and the author retains all rights.

Contributors will be soon able to submit materials through the website, 
but if you are interested in contributing in the meantime, or if you 
have questions, please send your materials to me at 
ysumusictheory at gmail.com.  I will forward them to the rest of the 
editorial board.

Best wishes,

Dr. Jena Root
Assistant Professor, Music Theory Coordinator

> The open-access and web-based ideas being discussed on this thread are exciting, indeed. As I understood it, this was part of the function of the new theory pedagogy website being created under the auspices of the Gail Boyd DeStwolinski Center and the Journal of Music Theory Pedagogy; Press release: http://www.choralnet.org/view/297880 Any updates on that project?
> Don't you also think, though, that part of the reason we create new materials when we teach (regardless of what we think of our institution's textbook situation) is because creating those materials helps us organize our own pedagogy and thinking on a topic? That is, creating at least some of the materials is an essential part of preparing to teach.
