The annual Ohio Music Education Association Conference was a busy time for Ashland music grads.  About 25 alums attended the weekend conference February 16-18 in Columbus, and many we able to join us for our alumni reception.

We were proud to see three of our graduates, Geoff Zimmerly, Megan Routh, and Trishah Snowden present clinics at OMEA. This is a significant honor for them, and shows the fine careers our graduates are developing.  Megan and Geoff teach in the Loudonville-Perrysville School District, and Trishah in the Nordonia Schools.

 Trishah Snowden's presentation was titled “Engaging Tweeners: Creative Projects and Activities for the General Music Classroom.”  Megan Routh and Geoff Zimmerly gave a joint presentation titled “From General Music to Ensembles: Molding the K-12 Musician,” and Routh also presented “ Creating a Seamless General Music Classroom: Tips and Techniques for New Teachers.”
