You will hear some of the best practitioners and thinkers in music education, including our FAME Endorsed Teacher Trainers and Dr. Feierabend himself. You will learn about First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege, Dr. Feierabend’s two most popular classroom programs, as well as how these programs and Dr. Feierabend’s philosophy and resources are used in every arena of music education. You’ll encounter discussions about the “real life” of a music teacher, both the challenges and successes.
