Join us for our next workshop! April 2, 2022

Planning Programs with Purpose

Presented by Meg Tietz

The performances that are put on by a music teacher during the school year are one of our major ways to communicate to our parents, teaching colleagues, and administrators what is happening within our classroom on a daily basis.  Additionally, with limited time in our schedules to make these programs a reality, it is essential that material is carefully chosen to support our curriculum instead of detracting from it.  This workshop will focus on different ways one might construct a program to fit within various constraints while still giving opportunity for student ownership, creativity, and joyful artistry and without sacrificing valuable teaching time.  

Meg Tietz teaches movement and music at Saint Paul Academy in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Meg completed her Masters Degree with a concentration in Orff Schulwerk at the University of St. Thomas.  She is an active presenter for local and national workshops and conferences and teaches summer Orff Levels at Southern Methodist University, Metro State University, and the University of St. Thomas.  Meg is currently a Region III Representative for the AOSA National Board of Trustees.
