Workshops for Music Educators

The Center for Music Education is committed to sponsoring Continuing Education Sessions for practicing teachers at the secondary level.  We offer several inspiring and informative sessions for Band Directors and String Orchestra Directors throughout the academic year. These workshops meet the requirements for Continuing Education Credit. Young teachers will develop skills and refine their technique. Veteran teachers will refresh their skills and gain new perspectives on their art. Everyone will be inspired and enriched with musical thought and professional camaraderie. See below for specific workshop information.
