4e. Growing and Developing Professionally
Over the course of the year I attend the ACDA and NAFME conferences whether they be regional and/or national. These conventions are often 3-4 days in length and consist of rehearsal strategies/repertoire exploration/collegial networking. In addition to these two organizations I also do continuining education work over the summer. This past year I spent several weeks at Oxford University in England studying plainchant/conducting. This summer I'll be completing numerous courses at Villanova dealing with rehearsal strategies and recording/production. Aside from school work/development I'm also a published editor for GIA Publications under the James Jordan Choral Series.
