I have news to share with everyone. This year I’ll be joining the NAFME Council for Music Education as a Member-At-Large.
NAFME, the National Association for Music Education, has several councils or subcommittees within the organization to help set the direction in areas like Jazz Education and Collegiate Advisory in addition to topics such as Music Composition and Band Education.
“The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) Council for Music Composition seeks to promote and improve the teaching of music composition in school settings,” says our group’s description on the website.
– To provide resources and opportunities that enhance the teaching and learning of music composition at all grade levels and in all music education content areas;
– To work with the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) divisions and state affiliates to encourage the development of division and state composition programs and festivals;
– To advocate for the importance of composition as an essential component of all students’ music education.;
– To support music education research in the field of composition.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to share my views on both popular music as well as music technology to the group, NAFME leadership, and the entire NAFME membership. Here’s a full list of the Council members I’ll be working with in 2015-2016.
