The nation's premier music educators convention has an annual attendance of thousands of music educators from across the United States and around the world, providing unparalleled opportunities for professional development for current and future music educators at every level and discipline. Mr. Price will present the session "Are We Warm Yet? Intentional Use of Voice Building for Choirs," focusing primarily on middle school choral ensembles. Mr. Price has served as the Director of Choirs at Westwood JH for 23 years and was the 2004-05 RISD Secondary Teacher of the Year.
