How can we use digital tools to motivate learners in band programs?

Join Saskatchewan-based French horn player and teaching artist Arlene Shiplett as she guides you through the latest applications, websites, and tools to engage and motivate music students in the 21st century band classroom. This virtual workshop helps teachers build their toolbox for teaching band remotely as well as getting students hooked and motivated to use web-based platforms for practicing repertoire and technique, theory, ear training, and creating their own compositions.
