Butler University will have a strong presence at the Indiana Music Teachers Association annual conference Friday and Saturday at IU-Bloomington.
The Butler University Music Teachers National Association collegiate chapter will present a session “Grow and Play Together: Preparing Children to be Successful Collaborative Musicians,” which they also presented at the MTNA National Conference earlier this year in Milwaukee, Wis.
Graduate piano pedagogy student Jeeyoon Kim will be presenting a session about iPads in the teaching studio entitled “Teaching Piano: Is There an App for That?”
And Julianne Miranda, associate professor, School of Music presents two sessions – one on musician wellness entitled “Mindfulness in Motion – Connecting the Musician’s Mind and Body” and a technology presentation, “Building a Teaching Library with Social Tools.”
“This level of participation raises the visibility of Butler University,” Miranda said, “particularly the strength of our piano pedagogy program, to music teachers throughout the state of Indiana, many of whom teach college bound musicians.”
