At the Music Education Committee meeting on Sept. 8, 2012, committee members shared various educational ideas and the committee has shared these ideas here.

We will be adding more links and ideas to this list throughout the year. If you have something in your "bag of tricks" that you would like to share with the membership, please email it to Mike Tolrud. We hope you have a great year!
