This institute is designed to meet the needs of music teachers from member schools of the Inter-Regional Center. Our week begins with two days of sessions led by Dr. Russell Robinson, Professor of Music Education at the University of Florida, who has many years of experience in teaching in international schools and conducting staff development. Dr. Michael Schallock will coordinate the session and several of Western Carolina University distinguished faculty will present the sessions. The following three days feature sessions led by WCU faculty on topics that will be developed on the basis of the participant survey. Participants will be able to choose which sessions are most interesting to them.
