Graves Piano and Organ Company – 5798 Karl Road
Cultivating well-rounded life musicians and
preparing students for professional careers in music.
Guest Speaker: Dr. Raymond Wise
Professor at Indiana University
Dr. Raymond Wise has extensive experience in composing, directing, choral music, music education, theater, church music, performing with national recording artists, recording projects, dance, and choreography. With these experiences, he has been afforded opportunities to travel globally. His degrees include a B.F.A. in music, and Masters and Doctorate degrees in Music Education from The Ohio State University.
The goal for this conference is to help teachers prepare their students to be ready and able to continue performing professionally after high school. The majority of our students will not become concert pianists or winners of American Idol, but there are many performance opportunities available. Dr. Wise will share his experiences as a teacher, performer and entrepreneur to discuss practical ways we can best prepare the next generation of collaborative musicians. Gather your questions, as topics will include the skill sets needed for various careers in music as well as community involvement and how to prepare your students for college music auditions.
We are planning to include representatives from our area University Music programs who will have materials available and answer questions regarding student auditions and summer music camps.
