The Latest Music Education & Technology Podcast with Aron Nelson, developer of unrealBook


The latest episode of the Music Education & Technology Podcast is now available for your enjoyment!  For this episode, we were joined by Aron Nelson, developer of unrealBook.

Show notes:

ME&T Podcast Blog

A listener to the podcast requested a way to share links and information from the podcasts.  It was a fair request, but as Paul and I maintain our own blogs, it didn’t seem right to use both our blogs to post that information.

As a result, Paul and I have teamed together to publish a podcast blog, where you can see the topics we covered, listen to the podcast (streaming through your browser), and when needed, click links.

In the case of app links, you have a choice to click a link that gives a referral payment to Paul or I.  Referrals are fantastic…the app costs the same, and the developer gets the same amount, but 7% of the purchase price of the app (out of Apple’s 30% cut) comes back to the referrer.  On $.99 apps, this isn’t a big deal, but on an app like NotateMe, that represents a nice bonus to the referrer of the app.  As most of us don’t get paid for our efforts, your choice to download an app through a referral link helps out immensely.

So…if you would like to visit the Music Education & Technology Podcast site, go to:

We will include this information in future editions of the podcast.  And as always, if you have feedback, questions you would like us to answer, or people/companies you would like us to interview, please let us know through our gmail account at metpodcast (purposely not placing that as a traditional e-mail address to avoid spam mail.
