Merry Christmas MMF! Family,
Thanks for a another year visiting and sharing our family of websites with your friends and others. Every share on Facebook, every RT on Twitter, and every link from your website to ours in appreciated. These wonderful gestures inspire us to continue to create.
According to Alexa.com, MMF! currently ranks 180,892 out of the 346 million websites that populate the internet (The lower the number the better), and was visited by 407,800 visitors last month. Wow!
Every year we like to share our favorite resources so far. This year we though we would expand to include resources from each or our websites. Perhaps this list will point you to something special that you'll share with your students, or you could benefit from yourself.
MMF! continues to grow, both in it's collection of resources and in the quality of each resource. This year we have taken the time to refine the resources in our collection, adding fingerings to the sheet music, adding lessons ideas, and improving the look of things.
