National Music Technology Leadership Academy
Sponsored by TI:ME and a NAMM Program Grant
Call for Participation
With the support of a grant from the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) we are pleased to announce a highly competitive program to selected a small group of undergraduate music majors nationally for the 2nd Annual Music Technology Leadership Academy. The Technology Leadership Academy will be held in association with the TI:ME (www.ti-me.org) and TMEA conference in San Antonio, Texas, February 14-16, 2013.
The Music Technology Leadership Academy is a program for pre-service music education majors (juniors and seniors) to focus on strategies for engaging non-traditional middle and secondary school students through technology-based music programs. Selected through a competitive application process, participants will attend the academy held in conjunction with the 2013 TI:ME National Conference/ Texas Music Educators Association Conference. Participants selected through an essay competition will be required to attend eight leadership academy sessions (Thursday through Saturday) focusing on developing strategies for utilizing technology to reach non-traditional music students and attend sessions and program activities throughout the TI:ME/TMEA conference. After the conference, participants will continue to share in an on-line forum, and will be asked to share the experience with pre- or in-service teachers in their community.
The Music Technology Leadership Academy is led by Drs. Rick Dammers, V.J. Manzo, and David B. Williams, nationally known music educators who specialize in working with non-traditional music students (see http://musicreativity.org). Students who are selected to participate will have their registration, two nights of hotel accommodations, and travel (up to $400) covered by TI:ME through the NAMM program grant.
To apply, send a two-page (single spaced) essay on the promise of technology in broadening the reach of music education to all students in K-12 school programs. Include your name, school, year in school, email address, and a letter of reference (preferably from a music education professor). Email to email@example.com with TI:ME/NAMM Music Technology Leadership Academy in the subject line by 11/26/12. Participants will be notified by 12/5/12.
