Website Update!

robbyburns.com receives a small update today. I have done some minor tweaking to the look and feel of the site. Additionally, I have added a blog to the site. I plan to begin using the blog as a platform for reviewing concerts and albums, technology, and for discussing other topics related to arts and productivity. I hope you will consider subscribing to the blog.

I added a button to subscribe to the entire site's RSS feed to the bottom of the page underneath "Connect with Robby." This feed includes all news updates, blog, music and video posts.

Finally, I have posted two tracks from the new Primitivity album, Evolution, on the music page and a jazz combo version of Radiohead's Pyramid Song to the video page. Check them out!

MMEA February Conference, America's Got Talent and more!

I am excited to be a Technology Clinician for the February 2013 MMEA Conference! If you are attending and interested, my session is called “Embracing the Cloud - Re-organizing your digital content for efficient teaching and student engagement." I will be reviewing a bunch of cloud based software that is mostly cross platform and free. I will also be discussing some iOS apps that make for great music teaching tools. I will post more information about this clinic along with notes and slides from my presentation as the date approaches. I am speaking on the Saturday date. More information can be found here: http://www.mmea-maryland.org/Copied-February-2012-Session-Schedule2.php In other news! - Primitivity traveled to New York to audition for America's Got Talent yesterday. We were very excited for the opportunity will certainly share any potential news about our future involvement with the program as we learn more.
