Presenter: Richard Fountain, NCTM Filmmakers ...................................................11 AM - 12 PM Muscle Activation Techniques: A New Solution to Performance Injuries As musicians we all know the importance of daily practice and the constant desire to perfect our craft, but what happens when the desire to practice and perform is thwarted by nagging performance injuries? Pain issues are an unfortunate reality for far too many musicians. Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) treatments are performed on a massage table where joint range of motion evaluations are followed by specific muscle tests. Once the problem area(s) are found, weak muscles are either “jumpstarted” with manual pressure or an isometric exercise. Treated muscles immediately have more strength and mobility improving overall body function.

What Does Efficient Practice Really Mean? As teachers, what do we do when students do not have enough time to practice? Do we punish them by grading them on their performance? Or do we teach them ways towards efficient practicing in order to be productive with their work? This presentation will define the meaning of efficient practice, identify the problems of violin performance practice, and suggest ways we can solve these issues.

Music composition is an effective way to increase practicing and student involvement in the studio. Composing is not a distraction from the performance goals of a music studio, but in fact works to increase music knowledge, solidify music theory concepts, improve music reading abilities, and most importantly, dramatically increase the satisfaction the student feels as a musician. This lecture-demonstration will give practical step-by-step advice on how to show even the most skeptical children that they can create original high quality music. Presenters: Edward Jason Brown and Bonnie Dove Maverick ..................................................................2 - 3 PM Forever Tango: The Life and Legacy of Astor Piazzolla The great works of Astor Piazzolla are being heard often in concert halls and classical radio stations around the world, and he is finally taking his rightful place among the great composers. In this session, Eduardo Rojas will draw on his South American heritage and extensive performing experience to bring the hypnotic beauty of tango, as Astor Piazzolla envisioned it, to you. Proper performance techniques will be discussed along side performances of his most beloved works, and an overview of how to effectively incorporate tango music into the private music studio will be discussed.
