MIDI Project. Some useful older info is still
The old project title just didn't work for us anymore. Students and schools from outside Vermont have been full-fledged participants since 2008. We no longer use midi files as our primary file sharing protocol. As a program, we've been in existence since 1995. "Project" denotes short term and we certainly expect to continue for years to come.
