Conservatory of Music to host Angela Myles Beeching, noted author and music educator
On March 12-13, 2012, the Conservatory of Music will host Angela Myles Beeching for a two-day residency with faculty and students. The focus will be to learn about the latest trends in arts education and the challenges of preparing music students for the varied opportunities available today.
As part of her residency, Ms. Beeching will encourage Conservatory students and faculty to consider how they can best develop the skills and attitudes that will help them to be adaptable and open to both find and create new opportunities to perform, teach, manage and compose in part, to help insure that music remains a vital part of society.
Additionally, Ms. Beeching will lead workshops to help faculty develop and strengthen the various forms of assessment used in the Conservatory to help insure that all students are well prepared for their future success.
