Music And Technology

Join Michelle Cosgrove for a review of current trends in technology and how they can be applied in music teaching. Members of the chapter will be surveyed to ascertain which topics they want covered. This may include: website construction and SEO strategies, Google ecosystem, music apps, recording techniques and equipment that can be used with Audacity, shareware, Artificial Intelligence and uses in marketing, YouTube and passive monetization, cloud computing and file organization, video conferencing platforms, or other topics requested by our members.

This workshop will be held virtually so that teachers can follow along with their computers to learn new skills. There will be plenty of Q and A, so come prepared to ask the questions about any tech that you want to know more about, but don't know where to start.

Michelle Cosgrove has been active with the Philadelphia Music Teachers Association for over a decade; previously held the Treasurer office, was on the technology committee and instrumental in guiding the completion of two website rebuilds, and is our current co-President. She holds a Music Education degree from The College of New Jersey, and a Masters in Flute Performance from West Chester University. She taught at The Community Conservatory (2001-2022) in Doylestown. During her time there, she was voluntarily responsible for getting all teachers access to wifi early on, and helping colleagues learn new technology. While with Centennial School District (2000-2005), she took numerous continuing education courses centered around the Microsoft office suite, and Html coding. She also took courses through University of the Arts that were focused on Music Technology: learning how to operate music notation software, and utilize audio, graphic, and video editing programs. Michelle's technology education continues through attendance to workshops at various music conferences, and active participation in online to forums. Michelle currently has a private studio for flute, piano, and chamber ensemble coaching.
