Well, that’s probably the longest post title I’ve ever written! But I thought some of you in the region might be interested in knowing about this great conference coming up. The Kansas Music Teachers Association and Missouri Music Teachers Association are joining forces to put together a fabulous conference this year!
Our guest artists are Nancy and Randall Faber, and we have a slew of additional workshops lined up as well. In fact, I’ve been asked to present a workshop titled, How to Design a Practice Incentive that Will Motivate Your Students All Year Long! I’ll be discussing the four components of a good practice incentive, sharing the secret to making lesson plans that last all year long, give tips for turning any concept or assignment into an exciting game, and share lots of real-life, practical examples. Hopefully it will be a lot of fun for all of us!
If you are interested in attending the conference, but aren’t a member of KMTA or MMTA, just send me an e-mail and I’ll let you know how you can register and still receive the member price.
Also, there will be two great performances during the weekend – a solo piano recital by Randall Faber on Friday evening including the following works:
• Mozart : Sonata in B-flat Major
• Debussy : Pour le Piano
• Gershwin : Three Preludes
• Chopin : Etude in C Minor and Etude in F Minor
• Chopin : Berceuse
• Liszt : Mephisto Waltz
and a special Community Children’s Concert on Saturday late afternoon, called, The Snow Queen, by Nancy Faber. Click here to download a copy of the flyer with additional information.
