Music Administration Collaborative

Music Administration Collaborative First Wednesdays - Creating a Positive Culture Through Mindset, Mindfulness, and Leadership - June 1, 2022 06:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER NOW

Just as a conductor’s preparatory “upbeat” gesture at the beginning of a performance influences the way an ensemble plays, we too get to choose our “upbeat” –our thoughts and attitudes—at the start of each day, at the beginning of each class, and in our interactions with students and colleagues. Join Dr. Matthew Arau, Conn-Selmer Education Clinician and Founder of Upbeat Global, as he lead us in a discussion of how we can embrace mindset and mindfulness strategies and leadership principles that will transform not only your internal world but the culture of your music program.
