MusicEdConnect is an opportunity for teachers to attend a national conference online, without travel expenses. Since sessions are live, attendees can connect with the presenter to ask questions, just as a conference. Want to watch a session again? No problem. View video archives online. Connect and network with teachers who were also in the session to find out how they applied the ideas. Is your favorite part of a convention the showcases and exhibits? No problem! We have those, too. Best of all, you don’t have to leave home and can sit in your most comfortable chair in your pajamas, if you wish.
