I am very excited to be a part of the 2012 Jazz Educators Network (JEN) and Technology Institute for Music Educators (TI:ME) Conference that is being held in January (4-7) in Louisville, KY! If you are on the fence about this event, get off of it and come join us!
I will be one of the many presenters at this conference and am very excited for these two great organizations to be doing this conference together. My background in Jazz and Technology makes this event most attractive to me indeed! I’ll be at the TI:ME registration booth, so if you are coming -you’ll likely run into me pretty quickly!
