PEDAGOGY AND PLAY
This YPLN (Young Professionals Leadership Network) event is open to CAPMT members and non-members. The aim of this initiative is to create a safe environment for teachers of ALL ages and to share their experiences in the classroom. Attendees are encouraged to participate in discussion and performance of student level repertoire and methods. Advanced performances are also welcome as some choose to use this platform to prepare for their own continuation of performance practice. Join us on July 27, 2019 at The Musik Planet. To make sure you are informed of all future YPLN events make sure to register on the CAPMT website here.
