Music education professor convenes at statewide summit

November 19, 2010

On Nov. 22, Edward McClellan, Ph.D., assistant professor and coordinator of music education at Loyola University New Orleans, will lead a statewide Collegiate Music Education Summit for music education undergrads and new music teachers. As collegiate chair of the Louisiana Music Educators Association, McClellan brings together school and university faculty from across Louisiana to mentor college students and new teachers about the music education profession.

According to McClellan, the purpose of the summit is to focus on the needs of pre-service and beginning music teachers.

“This meeting will attempt to assemble CMENC chapters from across Louisiana for the first time,” said McClellan. “In the future, new teachers will have the opportunity to attend sessions on a variety of topics including selecting band, choral, or orchestra literature, teacher legal issues, teacher leadership skills, starting a jazz ensemble or jazz choir, sight-reading concepts, and many more that are area specific.”
