This will be the first of a series of town hall discussions on the topics of creating music in all of its forms that the Council for Music Composition will be providing for music educators at all levels. In this kickoff event, members of the Council will hold a roundtable providing their thoughts and techniques of teaching composing, arranging, songwriting, and other creating forms as well as ideas as to how to integrate those techniques into an already-packed musical curriculum. After the roundtable, there will be at least 30 minutes allotted to engage with the audience and hear their questions and ideas on this broad topic. Presenters/facilitators: Dr. Rob Deemer, Council Chair; Carolyn Bennett; Dr. Mara Gibson; Courtney Kaiser-Sandler; Dr. Xander Koops; Ryan Main; Dr. Cynthia Van Maanen; and Brian Zeller. Join us for this first of many exciting and informational online discussions!
