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.
