DVMTA members were elated to gather in person for our annual April Brunch to celebrate another DVMTA year's success. What a year it has been, and we were grateful to visit in a social gathering. The brunch was held at Toni Tetreau's home, where we enjoyed delicious food and wonderful companionship. DVMTA President, Lori Weidemann, spent time thanking DVMTA Board Members, Committees and individual members for all the hard work to make this year happen. Despite many challenges related to COVID-19, DVMTA was able to adapt and carry on. Whether in person, virtually, or a combination of both, all of our Student Events and General Meetings were able to be held, and were successful. Thank you to all! Thanks also, to the April Brunch Committee, Wendi Heslop and Amy King, for a wonderful morning.
DVMTA members and friends gathered either online or in person at Hammer & Strings Conservatory in Gilbert for our last General Meeting of this year. We were privileged to hear from Dr. Karali Hunter, owner and founder of Hammer & Strings Conservatory. Dr. Hunter discussed "Sound in Motion" as she worked with three students of DVMTA teachers. Each student performed and Dr. Hunter helped each to further develop their motion skills to enhance sound, and to invite the audience into the performance. In just a short amount of time, such a difference was seen and heard in each student's ability technical skills, and in their ability to create imagery and expression. Thank you to Dr. Hunter for sharing her skills and knowledge and for connecting with these students in a personal and amazing way.
DVMTA members gathered in person, and virtually, for another wonderful General meeting. The topic was, "Making Music Theory a Priority in Your Studio." Our own DVMTA members, Lori Kaye Faler and Lacy Range, presented techniques, games and tools that have worked for them in keeping students engaged as they learn music theory. The discussion was excellent, and the resources shared will be used by many. Thank you for the wonderful presentation, Lori Kaye and Lacy!
