“Tradition and Innovation”
90th ASMTA State Conference-June 6-8, 2019
Northern Arizona University, School of Music – Flagstaff, AZ
As teachers and performers, we look to the past to build a musical foundation based on tradition while simultaneously seeking new, innovative approaches and repertoire to stay current and grow. The 90th conference will present a broad range of topics related to both tradition and innovation in music education, pedagogy, and performance.
The conference artist will be international Steinway artist Jeffrey Swann, and featured clinicians include Dr. Jane Magrath and Dr. Robert Duke.
