Band Music Technology and the M4All Summer Symposium
Each year, I’m humbled to part of the great team that works with middle-school band directors at the Music for All Summer Symposium. The team consists of Robert W. Smith, Cyndee Hawkins, Dr. Edwin Arnold, Dr. Charles Jackson, and myself. This year we had a special guest, Dr. Keith Dye give a couple of amazing guest presentations about the, equally amazing, MusicFirst products.
For two of the past years, I have opened the music technology sessions, with an overview of new technology and things that I have found amazing. This session covers the “gamut” and I am happy to present my “notes” for my only friends here as well on MusTech.Net.
