DEVELOPMENT OF THE SITE

Who created this site?
This site was created through the collaborative work and knowledge of Gary Gong, Ahundova Fidan, and Jaime Werner. For more information on the authors, visit the authors page.
How long did the creation of the site take?
It took roughly seven months to compose the entire site. However, like the art of music, the site can never be completely finished because music, like time, is forever in a constant march forward.
Was the site created with a lot of help from the team's coach, or did the students take on the burden of the workload?
This site was created entirely by the authors. It was the mindset of the authors that if we could not compete against our peers with minimal help from adults, then we should not be competing at all.
How did the authors of the site stay in contact with each other?
The authors stayed in contact with each other mainly through the Internet: electronic mail, video conferencing, and instant messaging. The team members have never met face-to-face, but have conversed regularly through the Internet.
FUTURE OF THE SITE

We promise to keep this site innovative and accessible as the arts and technology evolve. As more of the benefits of music are discovered, we will continue to update the site so that our site will continue to be a one-stop information source.

Yes. Additional translations are planned as the authors progress in their foreign language classes, including Turkish, Spanish, and Azeri.
How can I be sure of the accuracy of the essays?
The accuracy of the essays were checked by learned scholars in the arts and double-checked by a historian. Therefore, the error margin is small, leaving the essays to be virtually free of errors.
