Check out some episodes I've written for PBS Digital Studios music vlog SoundField, episodes about How to Write a Billboard Hit, How to Get a 10/10 Score from Anthony Fantano's Needle Drop vlog, and a Statistical Analysis of Disney Music .


Soundfly.com is an online music school Dean writes articles for, a place that "provides a home for the creative and curious to discover something new, and take a leap forward in their musical journey."


TonalTrends.com is a vlog about songwriting, with real time commentaries to popular songs, lessons on specific musical theory concepts, graphs of statistical trends in musical usage, and anything else about music that begs to be vlogged about.


Guitarate.com is where I post leveled curriculum ideas for students and teachers of guitar, born out of a spreadsheet database I started after too many times thinking "What in the heck am I going to teach my students today?"


The Grepublibat is a Facebook page dedicated to posting about civic topics, such as bridging common goals across the political spectrum, more efficient democratic systems like ranked choice voting, proportional representation, and citizen allocated tax strategies and other thoughts about what I like to call 'all-partisanship.'
