This week, my colleagues in Australia are holding the first ever Music Technology in Education Conference, MTEC09. This is the first event of its kind in Australia, and is being attended by more than 200 delegates in Melbourne. From the conference web site:
mtec09 is an engaging 3-day national conference in Melbourne, Australia, showcasing current technology and its applications in music education. This hands-on event will provide a unique opportunity for educators who are either new to music technology or experienced technology users.
The conference is focusing on all kinds of music technology, including Sibelius (of course!), but also other Avid products including Pro Tools, Pinnacle Studio, and so on, bringing together experts in education and top music education and industry figures in one place.
I’ll be getting up really early tomorrow to play my own small part in the conference, making myself available via video chat to the delegates on the opposite side of the world. So good morning, Melbourne!
In the meantime, check out the MTEC09 Wiki, where resources, notes and ideas coming out of the conference will be shared.
