with the support of Presenting Sponsor,
FAME is gathering together virtually as a music community to collaborate and build our pedagogical skills as teachers. Join us for a memorable and inspiring weekend of professional development, networking, community, and best practices in music education!
The main conference kicks off virtually on July 17th in the morning with an ever-popular Move It! session. The conference schedule is packed with wonderful content including a keynote address led by Reverend Dr. Donna Cox, a general session with Dr. Feierabend, two CampFeier Conversations where you can casually gather for informal Q&A, and our traditional Community Sing. Additionally, the two-day event will offer 6 different breakout sessions for a diverse range of topics by an international array of master teacher presenters offering informative and engaging sessions demonstrating applications and insights of First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege. Join us in the excitement and find thoughtful and energetic fellowship with others who share the 30-year plan for a more tuneful, beatful, and artful world.
For participants interested in earning graduate credit, did you know that by attending the conference you can earn one graduate credit through the Hartt School?
Whether you are a student just learning about the Feierabend Approach to Music Education or a seasoned educator who has used this method for years, you are guaranteed to learn something new at the FAME Virtual Conference. It is a great event with like-minded people who all share the same enthusiasm.
