My first task as the new Technology Chair for the Illinois chapter of the American String Teachers Association has been to redesign the IL-ASTA website, and I am pretty happy with how it’s looking. Take a look, and if you’re an Illinois ASTA member, send me any upcoming events or news and I’ll put them up on the site:
I’ll be doing a couple of clinics for this fall’s IL-ASTA Teacher Enrichment Workshop, which takes place on October 23rd at York High School in Elmhurst, IL. One session covers techniques for directors to get good bass tone out of students, and the other covers some simple steps to set up a quick and easy music ensemble/organization website. I’ll post more details (and probably the Keynote for the clinics) here on the blog as I continue to hammer away at them.
