This one-day Professional Learning workshop is set up to offer information, insight, and inspiration to music educators as they enter the summer planning months. Although getting your rest and quality family and friend time is a top priority during the summer, it is never too early to plan for the upcoming year. Our goal is for you to analyze what you are doing in your program and what steps need to be taken to take your program (and you) to the next level. Regardless of how long we have been teaching, there is always room to grow and learn new strategies and best practices for enhancing the music education experience for ALL Florida students.

Sessions will include:

What to Play at MPA: Observations of Diverse Programming at Florida Concert Band MPA
