    In the Eye of the Beholder – Picking Quality Music

    Larry Clark

    Presented by Larry Clark

    Thursday, February 2, 2017
    3:30pm-4:30pm
    Room CC 24

    As a music educator, choosing the right piece for your students’ needs often means sifting through thousands of choices, making this already subjective process even more difficult. What one person thinks is the greatest piece ever written could be annoying drudgery for someone else. Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there is a melody for everyone and no one is more qualified to decide what your students will enjoy than you. This clinic will break down some common characteristics of quality music that will help you to choose great music consistently for your ensembles.
