We are thrilled to have Dr. Jeffrey Savage, NCTM and Dr. Karen Savage, NCTM as our Conference Guest Artists. They will each be giving a presentation and a masterclass. Their joint concert on Friday, June 18th should not be missed!
The conference will feature more than twenty presenters, covering everything from pedagogy to best business practices. There will be also be concerts, honors recitals, a virtual exhibit hall, opportunities for connecting with old colleagues, and meeting new ones. We are 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 will be available to watch starting Tuesday, June 15, 2021. If you have questions for a presenter, look out for a live Q&A Session hosted Thursday – Saturday.
If you are interested in refilling your own artistic bucket, make sure to join a Warm-Up Session, starting at 8:15AM. If you are interested in discussing the days’ events and catching up with old colleagues, try popping over to the private Facebook page, or into one of the Close-It-Down Zoom rooms for fun and games.
New this year, WSMTA will be offering “Meal and Mentoring” sessions; these are opportunities to eat lunch and chat with someone a little farther on in the musical and pedagogical journey.
Included in your conference registration fee will be a complimentary conference booklet and access to all our presentations, recitals, and concerts both during the conference and through August 31, 2021.
We hope to see you there!
