BUSMEA: Up To Date

President’s Address


Dear BUSMEA members,

I am so happy to welcome you all back to an in person year of learning! After the last year and a half away from the school of music, I am so happy to be back at in person classes making music with all of you once again!

The past year and a half has had its struggles for the music community, but we as musicians and future educators have been able to pull through these challenges and have become stronger because of it. BUSMEA recognizes the challenges we have all had to face throughout the pandemic and we are here to support you!

This year, we will be focusing our professional development on how to succeed in the pandemic we are currently living in and the post pandemic world we will be entering when we start our careers. In many ways, music in schools has changed, and we know that and we want to help you succeed as a future music educator.

This year as a council, we have been discussing what gaps we need to fill in in our learning, and we are looking forward to future sessions about string instruments, technology in the classroom, and how to ensure your music program will be able to thrive despite the hardships music classes in schools have had to endure since the spring of 2020.

In order to stay connected with what we are doing, be sure to follow us on Instagram @bu_busmea which is where we are most active. We love to get student input by posting polls on our stories in order to get more input from our fellow classmates. You can also look at our website for upcoming dates and important events.

On behalf of BUSMEA, I want to wish you all a happy and successful year making music together!

Warm regards,

Mackenzie Dunseath

BUSMEA President
