Research Help Needed!

This section is devoted to those involved in music education who need feedback and assistance from active music educators. The projects and surveys are often requirements for conference presentations, graduate level courses and dissertations.

Please consider taking a few minutes of time to assist your fellow music educators!

Best Rehearsal Analogies

Greetings, Directors --

We need your best rehearsal analogies!  What imagery have you found to be effective for engaging students, and helping them to achieve the desired musical result? i.e. "Whenever I want students to play __________, I tell them to imagine _____________."  

This will be presented at the 2017 OMEA Conference session "'Play it Like Chocolate' – Rehearse with Creative Imagery to Engage Students and Achieve Musical Results" on Friday @ 8am. 


In appreciation for your help, your name will be credited in the handout, and you will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card.  

Thanks very much!
Jason Wyse & Tricia Astey
