    I would like continue to read my MEJ and Teaching Music. At this time, I read my daily newspapers (plural) and several magazines of interest to me easily, because they are delivered directly to my iPad. Why does NafME use these odd and obsolete interfaces to their journals, rather than a modern tablet app?

    Since my ID # is 375 I’ve wondered if I may be one of our oldest living members? I joined as a student as a sophomore in 1952. Served as a state president and many other positions through the years and and still advocate for music education any chance I get.
