PMEA 2010

PMEA In-Service Conference 2010

Below is a Cover It Live feed of live coverage from the PMEA Annual In-Service Conference in Pittsburgh, PA April 22-24, 2010. I served as a chaperone for the PMEA All-State Orchestra throughout the conference, and the experience of being involved with the All-State Festival from the inside out was definitely more than I bargained for! Check out the great tweets from other music educators and music ed undergrads attending the conference. Imagine, if we had 30 or 40 music educators contributing to the pearls of wisdom being shared here instead of 5 or 6! What a benefit to the entire profession! It's coming....

Here are podcasts of two conference sessions presented by Dr. James Frankel of SoundTree:
