It was great to visit the New York State School of Music Association (NYSSMA) winter conference in Rochester, NY. I arrived very late Friday night. I woke up early to present two sessions about integrating technology into the elementary music classroom.
The conference is a great one and I love coming back to it annually. I am an alum of Ithaca College and our clarinet choir traveled to NYSSMA way back in the 90s. When I go to NYSSMA, it is wonderful to catch up with people and to network with numerous music educators who are doing great things in their schools.
During my presentations, I tell the participants that I will give them a “dessert buffet” of ideas. This means that they can take one idea from the presentation because eating everything in the buffet would be too much to handle. I try to reach everyone in the room and show numerous and effective ideas and ways to integrate technology into the elementary music classroom while keeping the music curriculum in tact.
