Summer workshop for music teachers

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa is now accepting enrollments for two music education workshops this summer: Audio Engineering for Educators and RockShop! Modern Band Workshop. 

Each workshop is designed for teachers to enhance learning and instruction in their music classrooms. One hour of undergraduate or graduate credit is available for each workshop.

In Audio Engineering for Educators, participants will learn the skills that audio engineers use to capture the best performances from their students. This course allows educators to learn how to use different forms of audio equipment, including reinforcement gear and computerized digital recording. Teachers will learn about microphones, microphone techniques, mixing boards and digital audio.

In the RockShop! Modern Band workshop, teachers will learn to play a variety of instruments and discover the tools and resources necessary to bring student-centered, culturally-responsive and inclusive music education to students. This workshop is designed to teach the skills and curriculum needed to successfully run a modern band program at any grade level or classroom.

Audio Engineering for Educators will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 23-24 with options to attend online and in-person on the UNI campus. 

RockShop! Modern Band will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 27-28 on the UNI campus.
