Martin Norgaard, assistant professor of music education at Georgia State University in Atlanta, will bring diverse string methodology to the 2012 Orchestra Academy at Music Education Week this summer. The Orchestra Academy focus is “Adding Eclectic Styles to Your Orchestra.” Professional development academies there will give attendees the opportunity to explore a particular discipline in depth as they interact one-on-one with clinicians and network with their peers.

Norgaard, the Orchestra Academy presenter, is the author of ten jazz string method books including Jazz Fiddle Wizard and Jazz Fiddle/Viola/Cello Wizard Junior, and is the composer of several string orchestra pieces. In the two-day academy, participants will learn to teach fiddling using authentic aural models, create fiddle tune variations, improvise jazz solos, and learn to use amplification to create an authentic rock performance.

The National Association for Music Education (NAfME) presents 2012 Music Education Week June 22–25, in Baltimore, Maryland. For more info, visit www.nafme.org.
