Connecting Canada 2022: Professional Development

July 8 & 9, 2022

Choosing Change: The Post-Pandemic Music Studio



Recently, studio teaching has dramatically changed. Moving forward, music teachers will assess what changes they will continue to integrate in their teaching studios. “Choosing Change” features professional development sessions on responsible online practices, building relationships with students regardless of proximity, time management, studio technology (recording equipment, video editing and production), marketing across regions, plus much more!

Connecting Canada 2022: Professional Development is an opportunity for music teachers to learn from each other and gain fresh insights from experts.
