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!
December Brunch is a time for DVMTA members to get together and socialize, enjoy some good food, and prepare for the busy holidays. We were fortunate to be able to gather this year at T.C. Eggington's, and those who attended relaxed and visited with one another. Our numbers may have been few, but those who wanted to be there were there in spirit, enjoying the camaraderie we share as DVMTA members and friends. Thanks to Lacy Range for organizing the event, and we hope for more opportunities to meet together soon.
