The University of Northern Iowa is now accepting enrollments in two music education workshops this summer. Each workshop is designed for teachers to enhance learning and instruction in their music classrooms. One hour of undergraduate credit is available for each.

In the RockShop! Modern Band Workshop, teachers will learn to play a variety of instruments and discover the tools and resources necessary to bring student-centered, culturally-responsive and inclusive music education to students. This workshop is designed to teach the skills, curriculum and network to successfully run a modern band program at any grade level or classroom.

Audio Engineering for Educators Workshop participants will learn the skills that audio engineers use for capturing the best performances from their students. This course allows educators to learn how to use different forms of audio equipment, including reinforcement gear to computerized digital recording. Teachers will gain knowledge in microphones, microphone techniques, mixing boards and digital audio. 

RockShop! Modern Band Workshop will be held June 24-26 and Audio Engineering for Educators Workshop will be held June 27-28. Both will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the UNI campus. To learn more about each workshop and how to enroll, visit
