    You guys featured one of my classmates from Hartt in a recent issue. I’m looking forward to reading Scope. I thought you might like to see what thinking ‘outside the box’ in music education looks like. Discover, Learn, and Play is a self-paced online music learning curriculum designed by the Dallas School of Music. It’s being used by individual learners worldwide, large groups, non-profits, and even some school districts in the states. Affordable access to quality music education with the support of professional teachers makes our program unique and one of the fastest growing online methods in the world. http://www.discoverlearnandplay.com

    Was this inspired by the historic design publication also titled Scope, which featured Will Burtin and Lester Beall?

    Hi Elizabeth: I can’t claim inspiration from that SCOPE magazine in terms of our original intent or even our naming (we settled on it in the traditional way, by brainstorming). But I do believe that I had stumbled across the old SCOPE prior to (or while) designing our first issue’s cover, and was very impressed with the minimalist but beautiful combination of masthead and art. The old FORTUNE covers of the 1930s and 40s (see here: http://www.gono.com/adart/fortune/fortune_magazine_covers.htm) were my direct inspiration, however, and they happened to be designed with a philosophy similar to “old” SCOPE’s (http://www.burningsettlerscabin.com/?p=5712). More generally, I wanted to experiment with the range of design options that being a digital magazine offers, and to avoid the same-old-same-old approach taken by most newsstand magazines. Thanks for asking!
