It was an absolute pleasure to attend and present at the Canadian Music Educators’ Association‘s first national conference in twenty years. The conference was very well organized, I was able to attend a number of informative sessions (including several with Frank Ticheli!), and I heard some truly inspiring music making. The music teachers of Manitoba and Western Canada are doing excellent work!
In this photo, attendees in my workshop are checking out some less-than-ideal reeds for defects. This was an especially lively and curious bunch of teachers, which made them a lot of fun to work with – I’m glad to have been able to share what I know with some already excellent educators!
