Abstract

Attending The Midwest Clinic allowed me the opportunity to complete and supplement the ongoing research for my undergraduate senior project, focused on performance technique, teaching philosophy and the programming of instrumental repertoire. During my stay I attended lectures, performances and demonstrations by the most highly regarded musicians and educators in the country. The lectures provided me with the chance to speak with professionals about their personal experiences and teaching philosophies, which is significant to any future music educator. Lecturers included: John P. Lynch (Univ. Of Georgia), Otis Murphy (Indiana Univ.), Eugene Corporon (Univ. of North Texas), John Madden (Michigan State), Lawrence Stoffel (CSU Northridge), and H. Robert Reynolds (USC). My programmatic research was complemented by the performances of a variety of top instrumental ensembles which showcase the newest ideas and performances, they include: Michigan State University Wind Ensemble, the Brooklyn Wind Symphony and several high school and middle school wind ensembles and orchestras. This research is pertinent to musicians and educators of all ages; through my administrative role in the CMS and leadership positions in performing instrumental ensembles my peers have also benefitted from my experiences.
