“Jammin’ the Classics”

This Fall Conference program presented by Bradley Sowash, Clinician, Performer, Columnist and Teacher, is guaranteed to energize your fall teaching! Bradley’s enthusiasm for creative music making has inspired many of us. His ideas for musical improvisation and creativity are endless. “Jammin’ the Classics” will include ideas for using traditional “classical” literature as a starting point for creative music making that will inspire your students.

Bradley’s credentials are amazing. He is widely published, teaches privately and “on-line, presents workshops all over the country and has frequently spoken at MTNA National Conferences. One of Bradley’s webinars is currently on the MTNA website. He suggests that we view this short presentation, also called “Jammin’ the Classics”, in preparation for the September 22 Conference. (Go to the MTNA website under Members Only)

At the September 22, 2017 Fall Conference, Bradley will include ideas that can be used by piano, instrumental, and string teachers. Bradley will offer interested participants a chance to try out some ideas. His “hands on” activities can accommodate pianists as well as other instrumentalists. If you wish to bring a string, brass, or woodwind instrument Bradley can include you and your instrument in improvisation activities. What fun!

We hope to see you on Friday, September 22. It should be a creative and informative morning.

Conference Co-Chairmen: Carol Rein and Sharon Walton
