Call for Manuscripts!
The Macro Analysis Creative Research Organization invites musicians of all disciplines to submit manuscripts for publication consideration in Musical Insights. Topics on any aspect of music are welcomed. Authors are encouraged to include macro analysis and address various aspects of music theory pedagogy, including aural training, sight singing, teaching techniques, and favorite teaching projects.
