Well, I meant to post about this a long time ago, but I kept forgetting. Our annual state conference is just two weeks away for anyone who wants to attend. This year’s conference will be held in Emporia and will be featuring Melody Bober and Jane Solose. I’m also scheduled to present a couple of workshops and I’m really looking forward to it! Here are the workshop descriptions:
Creative Collaboration – Making Every Lesson Come Alive!
Whether you’re teaching an individual student or working with a group, you can make every lesson a rich and rewarding musical experience. In this fast-paced session Natalie Wickham, NCTM will walk you through the process of cultivating, implementing, and infusing creativity. Then, she’ll load you up with ideas to use in all sorts of scenarios: Fun with One, Friendly Duos, Family Favorites, and Groups Galore!
Technology Treasure Trove!
With millions of places to travel on the web today, it can be overwhelming to navigate to the destinations that will prove the most beneficial for your studio. In this enlightening workshop, Natalie Wickham, NCTM, will help you discover some of the most exciting possibilities that are available at little or no cost. Whether you want to utilize technology to teach long-distance lessons, make CDs of your students’ playing, create your own YouTube channel, learn to upload video clips on the fly, or live stream studio recitals so that friends and relatives around the world can tune in, you will leave inspired and equipped to make these dreams a reality!
NOTE: If you have an association or other music educator’s group that would be interested in having me present a workshop, just send me an e-mail and I will send you a list of workshop topics!
