Now, granted, it isn't really the teaching tool for the musician wanting to learn a few things on Lynda.com. This is really just another example of the great innovation going on in Music EdTech, and the Polyphony reference gave me a great segue in our article to change topics. The question herein is from where does one learn more? Informed by more than 15 years of music education experience, Musicians' Desk Reference offers templates, timelines, instructional guides, and more, tailored to the modern artist's needs. What excites us in MediaTech Ventures is that not only does the young or aspiring musician need to learn to play, the entrepreneurial musician is really running a business and thrives through their learning of how to turn a talent into a tour.
