Music Educators Track at Festival: Saturday, July 1
Note: Please share this information with your Music Educator friends and colleagues!
The Area 2 Festival Conference 2017 will feature a special track for Music Educators dealing with the inclusion of handchimes/handbells in their music program to achieve the National Standards in Music. This five-session track will
focus on the needs of the music educator in public or private educational settings.
The track will include exploring teaching rhythms, ostinatos, chordal accompaniments, handchime/ handbell ringing techniques, selections for ringing, resources for ringing, Q & A, and a roundtable discussion. As this track is geared for the public schools, the music used will be of a secular nature.
This track has been designed to be completed in one day (lunch included) and Professional Development credit is available for New York and New Jersey teachers.
Note: we are no longer able to provide Professional Development credit for Pennsylvania teachers.
If you register for Festival Conference, you may choose to take the ME Track at no additional cost.
The registration fee for the ME track alone is $80.00.
The track will be held during the 2017 Festival Conference on Saturday, July 1, 2017 at:
Onondaga Community College near Syracuse, NY.
The Music Educators Track registration form may be found at the end of the Festival 2017 registration packet.
