MMEA Session Notes

Thrilled to be back at the MMEA Conference this weekend. I am presenting my session, "Become a Mac Power User," today at 4:25 pm in room 306. Tomorrow, I am joined by my colleague, Ben Denne, as we direct the Ellicott Mills Middle School Symphony Orchestra at 12:50 pm.

Here are the session notes for "Becoming a Mac Power User"...


View notes for "Become a Mac Power User" (OmniOutliner | PDF)


I made the notes using the OmniGroup’s incredible outlining app, OmniOutliner. You can download their app for free here to open the outline (in read-only mode) in all its hierarchical glory. Or, you can simply download the PDF (its way less pretty and interactive though). It is worth mentioning that Omni also has a new 10 dollar "Essentials" version of OmniOutliner if you like what you see and want to create your own.

I am also excited to announce that my sessions are supported by both Sanebox and Hazel. Those who attend my sessions this weekend will get a 15 dollar credit towards Sanebox, in addition to their existing 14 day free trial. Sanebox, for those who do not know, is an essential service for filtering and organizing email. Two members of each session will get a free software code to download Noodlesoft’s powerful app, Hazel (32 dollar value), which automates the organization of files on your Mac’s hard drive.
