HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
Roses are red
violets are blue
music is sweet
that’s why we love you.
What a fun time we had at the District Meeting “Open Mic” program! Thank you to those who participated and to Jack Melvin for hosting us. I am already brain storming the possibilities for next year’s performance. Congratulations to the new District Board! We appreciate the hard work of the previous board and wish the new board well.
At our February 14th meeting, we will hear Dr. Jonathan Reed as he presents “Musical Interpolation: filling in musical gaps with student creativity.”
This is a great opportunity to learn how to help our students be creative. Creativity develops ownership in the music and can increase interest.
Remember the coming District Concerto Competition, Student Day and JMTA student recital. We are blessed to be able to offer our students such a variety of musical experiences.
We are in need of two committee chairpeople:
1. Ethics: become a third party to resolve disputes. We follow the MTNA code of ethics.
2. Historian: collect items and put them on Google Drive or give them to Amy Turon. Everything needs to be digital.
These positions are not time consuming. If anyone would be willing to fill either of these positions, please let me know ASAP. Even if you cannot attend the monthly meetings, you could do either of these jobs.
Come to the monthly meetings and learn not only from the program presenters but also from each other, plus the food and fellowship are great.
Dr. Sandra Roberts
