I arrived in Tampa, Florida today for the American String Teachers Association conference. I’ll be representing Indiana both as the chapter president and also in my role as manager of Encore Orchestral Strings. I’m excited about both hats I’ll wear and all of the friends I’ll see! Tomorrow is a day’s worth of meetings with other state chapter leaders and I’m so excited to learn about all the ways these wonderful people are serving the string educators in their states. I plan to bring back many new ideas and I can’t wait to get started! Please be sure to check out the Encore Orchestral Strings Facebook page for updates!
