Nick Averwater checks in with David Jahnke from Hal Leonard to learn more about Looking Forward To 2020-2021, Hal Leonard's Virtual Music Education Summit, which happened July 29-30, 2021. They talked on July 16th at the Summer NAMM Show in Nashville.
The 2021-2022 school year is about looking FORWARD to rebuilding our music programs and engaging students in class and at home. Hal Leonard's free virtual music education summit provided two days of live presentations, with a carefully-selected program focused on preparing K12 music educators for a successful school year while celebrating music education. This event provided sequential presentations that focused on meeting the needs of all students this fall.
