Clay Stevenson presents webinar for the National Association for Music Education
On Oct. 10, Clay Stevenson, Lecturer of Music, presented a webinar on incorporating technology in music ensembles for the National Association for Music Education.
The webinar, "Performing with Computers: Technology in an Ensemble," focused on incorporating state-of-the-art music technology tools in traditional and commercial music ensembles.
The webinar offered a means for accredited music teachers to earn recertification points and NAfME will host a recording of the event on its servers to allow members to watch at a later time.
Topics included using music technology to fill the role of traditional instruments, add effects to existing sound, facilitate supporting “backing-tracks”, and host live DJ performances.
Much of the webinar used examples from Techtronica, Elon’s commercial electronic dance ensemble, to demonstrate the accessibility and feasibility of the concepts covered.
