Dr. Jeffrey Savage, NCTM and Dr. Karen Savage, NCTM wowed conference attendees with their presentations and masterclasses, and their joint concert.
The conference featured more than twenty presenters, covering everything from pedagogy to best business practices. There were concerts, honors recitals, a virtual exhibit hall, opportunities for connecting with old colleagues, and meeting new ones. We were particularly excited to offer several sessions geared toward high school students on Saturday, June 19th.
One advantage of our virtual conference this year is that there will be no need to choose between two stellar sessions. You can attend them all! Many of our presentations are already available to watch, and will remain available through September 15, 2021.
Attendees interested in refilling their artistic buckets, joined a Warm-Up Session. Those interested in discussing the days’ events and catching up with old colleagues, carried on lively discussions on the private Facebook page, or jumped into one of the Close-It-Down Zoom rooms for fun and games. The Facebook page is still up and open for ongoing discussion!
New this year, WSMTA offered “Meal and Mentoring” sessions; these were opportunities to eat lunch and chat with someone a little farther on in the musical and pedagogical journey.
Included in the conference registration fee is a complimentary conference booklet and swag bag and access to all our presentations, recitals, and concerts both during the conference and through September 15, 2021.
Just like usual, our evening recitals were open to the public. Friends or family who were interested in attending the WSU Faculty Recital, the Washington Winners Recital, or the 88 Squared performance were able to purchase stand-alone tickets. The State Honors Recitals are available to all. Click the button below to watch!
