I’ll be participating in a fun—and exciting—event on February 4, 2015. It’s the MusicEdConnect conference, featuring nationally recognized presenters (including me!) in an online conference.
This will be the second year for the conference, and for me presenting in it. It felt awkward, at first, connecting with my audience through a laptop. No eye contact and no real-time feedback!
But I got used to it quickly and ended up really valuing the opportunity for online interaction with attendees. There is an on-line exhibit hall, too, and many opportunities to network—without leaving your own home!
My topic this year will be “Memorization: Psychological Data and Some Practical Tips”. You can also view my talk from last year, “Musical Punctuation and the Art of Interpretation”.
The lovely people in charge of the conference have offered a coupon code for my readers. You save $20 when you enter the code AMAZINGSCOTT today and tomorrow (I didn’t think up the name, but I didn’t argue, either…). You can visit the website at www.musicedconnect.com.
