On-line registration is now available for Drake University's Comprehensive Musicianship Project (CMP) course, which will be offered June 24-27.  CMP brings K-12 band, chorus, orchestra, and general music teachers together for a four-day workshop that consists of demonstration rehearsals and classes, presentations, and small group discussion, as well as substantial time devoted by each participant to the formulation of a teaching plan usable in the coming school year.


CMP is a planning process, not a curriculum.  The CMP model (music selection, analysis, outcomes, strategies, assessment) aligns perfectly with the Iowa Core, which schools throughout the state are mandated to implement.  Our CMP team can guide you with concrete ways of thinking and planning that insure inclusion of the Iowa Core concepts in your music classes and performing ensembles.

The 2014 NAfME All-National Honor Ensembles the applications are open, the application deadline is May 16, 2014.  This year the process will again be completed through Acceptd.com.  The applications are set up so that students can complete the application, pay the fee, and upload audition materials on their own.  Once the application is complete, the student’s director will receive an e-mail through the Acceptd requesting an endorsement of the student’s application.  One of the benefits of using Acceptd is the ability for students to complete a profile and upload media that may also be used for them to apply directly to college and university music programs.  This online platform also allows reviewers and the selection committee to complete the selection process virtually.

Dear Iowa Music Educator,

As a music teacher for more than twenty-years, teaching exclusively students with severe behavior disorders, I can certainly relate to the challenges you face in your classroom with students who have disruptive behaviors. I would like to know what you are faced with on a regular basis because there is such little research in our field concerning behavior challenges in music education—it is really important to document what the actual data is from current music teachers.
