SONGER STUDIO
ERIC PRESENTING THIS FALL IN WISCONSIN, IOWA & MORE
IT’S THE YEAR 2017, AND MUSIC EDUCATION SHOULD NOT LOOK LIKE IT DID IN 1967.  THAT’S ONE OF THE PREMISES ERIC SONGER’S “NEXT GENERATION OF MUSIC EDUCATION” IS BUILT ON.  THE CONCEPTS OF TEACHING MUSIC THROUGH LARGE ENSEMBLES SUCH AS ORCHESTRA, CHOIR AND BAND IS STILL EXTREMELY VALUABLE TO STUDENTS AND OUR CULTURE.  HOWEVER, THERE IS MORE THAT STUDENTS SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE AND LEARN IN THE MUSIC CLASSROOM.

ERIC’S NEXT PRESENTATION WILL BE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8 AT HAAS FINE ARTS CENTER ON THE CAMPUS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN-EAU CLAIRE AT 11:15 A.M. DURING THE UWEC TROMBONE SUMMIT. 

ERIC’S WILL THEN BE PRESENTING ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 31 AT FERGUSON HALL ON THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA CAMPUS AT 10 A.M. FOR PER-SERVICE TEACHERS ATTENDING THE U OF M. 

HIS NEXT PRESENTATION ON “NEXT GENERATION OF MUSIC EDUCATION” WILL BE AT THE IOWA MUSIC EDUCATION ASSOCIATION’S STATE CONFERENCE ON NOVEMBER 17 AT 8:30 A.M. ON THE CAMPUS OF IOWA STATE UNIVERSITY IN AMES, IOWA.   

ERIC HAS LED THE CHARGE AT HIS SCHOOL AND DISTRICT IN TRYING TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH MORE OPPORTUNITIES SUCH AS AFTER SCHOOL ROCK, COUNTRY AND HIP HOP GROUPS; ELEMENTS OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC IN THE TRADITIONAL CLASSROOM; COMPOSITION AND RECORDING PROJECTS THAT INCLUDE MUSIC TECHNOLOGY AND MUCH MORE.

ERIC JUST PRESENTED AT THE ASSOCIATION FOR POPULAR MUSIC EDUCATION’S NATIONAL CONFERENCE IN DENVER, COLORADO ON THURSDAY, JUNE 15.  THE CONFERENCE WAS HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO-DENVER.   

ERIC’S PROGRAM WAS ALSO ON DISPLAY WHEN HE PRESENTED AT THE ASSOCIATION OF POPULAR MUSIC EDUCATION’S NATIONAL CONFERENCE AT BERKLEE SCHOOL OF MUSIC IN BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS ON FRIDAY, JUNE 3.  THE CONFERENCE WAS AN AMAZING DISPLAY OF POPULAR MUSIC EDUCATION GOING ON ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND IN EUROPE.  K-12 AND COLLEGIATE PRESENTERS ALL SHARED INCREDIBLE CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION, TECHNOLOGY AND IDEAS. 

ERIC ALSO PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR MUSIC EDUCATION NATIONAL CONFERENCE IN GRAPEVINE, TEXAS ON THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 10 AT THE GAYLORD TEXAN RESORT & CONVENTION CENTER.  IT WAS GREAT TO ALSO SEE MANY OTHER PEOPLE PRESENTING ABOUT NON-TRADITIONAL GROUPS, MODERN BAND, GUITAR, AND OUTSIDE THE BOX THINKING IN THE WORLD OF MUSIC EDUCATION. 

ERIC HAS ALREADY PRESENTED THIS INNOVATIVE PROGRAM OF TEACHING AND LEARNING AT UNIVERSITIES IN MINNESOTA AND WISCONSIN AND HAS ALSO PRESENTED IN LAS VEGAS, NEVADA. THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN AWARDED GRANT MONEY FROM THE ING (NOW VOYA) UNSUNG HERO PROGRAM AND CENTURY LINK FOUNDATION JUST TO NAME A COUPLE.
