Just a quick note to let you all know that I’ll be in Muncie, Indiana the better part of this week to participate as a clinician with the Music for All Summer Symposium. If you are not aware of Music for All, it’s a great organization that fulfills it’s mission through programming that includes some of the most exciting and recognized events in the world, as well as advocating for arts education and music for all. I’m excited to have the opportunity to see a number of my old friends and meet a number of new ones this year in Muncie!
I’ll be giving a clinic on Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m. titled: “Beautiful and Easy Website Development for School Band Programs (or Anything Else!)” and on Friday at 8:30 titled: “Marketing Your Band Program: An Overview of Web 2.0 and Social Media Tools and Strategies for School Band Programs”. I intend to post some of the materials after the events right here on MusTech.Net!
