Music and Sound Technology Practice in Education Conference
University Centre, Doncaster, 7th-9th July 2008
This inaugural conference will concentrate both on developing hands-on technology skills, and discussion and development of teaching ideas in the real world. The three-day event is aimed at anyone working in music education at secondary, FE or HE levels and will include workshops and demonstrations on a range of equipment that is commonly used in teaching the subject. Support is already being provided by Apple, Sibelius, Yamaha, Roland, Digidesign, Gigajam and Ableton in the form of expert trainers and presenters. The conference will also include presentations and seminars from people who teach the subject, and hopefully give people involved in music education the opportunity to ask and discuss questions that are key to teaching the subject, such as ‘how do I teach 30 children with only 10 computers?’ and ‘what is the best way to approach A level composition with standard industry software?’ for example.
The conference organisers are currently looking for anyone who might be interested in presenting or leading a seminar/masterclass at the conference. Please submit a brief description of no more than 250 words detailing your topic for presentation/seminar to the conference organisers at firstname.lastname@example.org
