UNI to offer summer music workshops for educators

music recording equipment

The University of Northern Iowa is now accepting enrollments in two music education workshops this summer: Audio Engineering for Educators and RockShop! Modern Band Workshop. Each workshop is designed for teachers to enhance learning and instruction in their music classrooms. One hour of undergraduate or graduate credit is available for each workshop.

In Audio Engineering for Educators, participants will learn the skills that audio engineers use for capturing the best performances from their students. This course allows educators to learn how to use different forms of audio equipment, including reinforcement gear and computerized digital recording. Teachers will gain knowledge in microphones, microphone techniques, mixing boards and digital audio.

In the RockShop! Modern Band workshop, teachers will learn to play a variety of instruments and discover the tools and resources necessary to bring student-centered, culturally-responsive and inclusive music education to students. This workshop is designed to teach the skills and curriculum needed to successfully run a modern band program at any grade level or classroom.

Audio Engineering for Educators will be held June 21-22 and RockShop! Modern Band will be held June 24-25. Both workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Courses will be held on the UNI campus, or participants can choose to complete the workshops entirely online via Zoom. Learn more and enroll!
