Off to the Ohio Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference

I am so excited to be returning to Cleveland for the weekend to present at the Ohio Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference.

Here are the session notes of all three presentations I am giving this weekend…

I am wishing all of my friends at Maryland attending the MMEA conference and my students who are participating in the All State Bands a great weekend.

MMEA Session Notes - Working With Digital Scores

Tomorrow I will be presenting at the Maryland Music Educators Association's Fall Conference. The session I am presenting is all about Working with Digital Scores. I will be covering file management, scanning, and score reading software such as forScore. I am also going to be digging in to some of the new iPad productivity features that shipped with iOS 11 last month. If you are going to be at the conference, come say hi!

Here are the session notes for the session...

Conference season!

It is a pretty exciting time of year for me. I am presenting at the Ohio Music Educators Association conference next week and at the Texas and Maryland MEA conferences the following week.

At each conference I am promoting my new book, Digital Organization Tips for Music Teachers. I am also introducing two new sessions into my repertoire: Digital Time Management for Music Teachers and Working with Digital Scores.

My book will be available for sale at TMEA and most likely at OMEA. I look forward to seeing you if you are at either of these conferences!
