Kazoos and Emojis

Presentation at MTNA and MusicEDConnect conferences

What an honor is was to present at two recent national conferences! In February I presented at the Music Ed Connect conference, an amazing online conference you can attend from your own home. Then in March you could find me at the 2019 MTNA Conference in beautiful Spokane, Washington. My topic was Kazoos and Emojis: engaging activities for exploring modes with every student. My students and I had such fun exploring the modes last year that I wanted to share what we did with my colleagues. The kazoos were definitely a hit at the presentation!

Flintstones in modes was a big hit, even if the chords aren’t exactly accurate!
