All-State Band, Orchestra, Choir & Jazz Concerts at 75th WMEA State Conference in Yakima

Posted by glennled on February 17, 2012

Yakima, Washington is being invaded by more than 1,000 music educators and 1,600 student musicians over Presidents Day Weekend. This happens annually when the Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) conducts its state in-service conference. This is the Diamond Jubilee Conference, celebrating WMEA’s 75-year support of music education.

The event will include more than 100 educational sessions, 30 performing groups, and 80 exhibitors. The students represent various WMEA All-State honor groups from grades 5 through 12. Concerts will be held on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 18-20 February. For more information, see www.wmea.org.

I can’t wait until one or more of my trumpet students makes All-State Band or Orchestra. I want to help someone become the best he or she can be!  🙂

Another of My Trumpet Students Makes Seattle All-City Elementary Honors Band

Posted by glennled on February 17, 2012

For the second year in a row, one of my trumpet students has been selected by the Seattle Public Schools music program to perform in the annual All-City Elementary Instrumental Music Honors Concert. The band will play at Chief Sealth International High School, 2600 SW Thistle, Seattle, on Saturday, 31 March, at 4 p.m. The concert is free.

Students were selected because of their dedication to improving their skills and their exemplary musicianship. The event celebrates their success and provides the city schools’ best 5th-grade musicians the opportunity to play together among their peers. I’m very proud of my student—indeed, he is among the best! He attends Lawton Elementary School in Magnolia, where Lindsey Dustin is the Instrumental Music Teacher (see www.LawtonElementary.org).
