College Band Directors National Association (CBDNA)
My first presentation at a CBDNA conference was built from the material in "Influencing Sound: Myths, Metaphors, and Musicianship" (see Writing tab). It focuses on conducting practice and pedagogy. Here's a video podcast version.
You'll notice that my Keynote skills improved greatly in the seven years between my first lecture at CBDNA and this next one. Although the 2013 session grows from the same root as the 2006 session, its focus is historical and philosophical with strong leanings toward rehearsal practice. Here's a video podcast version. It's divided into two parts due to the size of the original file (as I said, my Keynote skills had improved).
My 2014 session at the Ithaca/CBDNA Conference on Instrumental Music Education is the partner of the 2013 session. It condenses the previous presentation into about seven minutes, then demonstrates how the concepts look in action. The 2014 session is the "how to" version of the 2013 ideas. Here's a video podcast version. It's divided into four parts due to the size of the original file. I am now a Keynote master - having said as much, the transitions between slides have been removed for logistical reasons related to the transfer to QuickTime. If you want all the bells and whistles, you'll just have to catch a live session.
The UNL Wind Ensemble did a bang-up job (for the youngsters, that means "great") in Ames, Iowa at the College Band Directors National Association Conference in 2016. We performed the same program back home a few days later, and that performance video is now available here: https://youtu.be/nuEtU0OEd0w Check out the program.
