Congratulations to Dr. Charles Weise (MME '20), who will be featured as a presenter at the upcoming 73rd annual Midwest Clinic.  Entitled, "Finding IT; Characteristics of Effective Music Ensemble Conductors," Dr. Weise's presentation provides suggestions on how to be an effective conductor through research evidence, both in and outside of music education.  The clinic will be held December 19 from 4:30-5:30 pm in meeting room W187.

Dr. Weise currently teaches at South View Middle School in Edina, MN, and holds degrees from the University of St. Thomas and Penn State.  He has taught at both high school and elementary levels, and has had ensembles under his direction be selected to play at the Minnesota Music Educators Association, Midwest Clinic (2013, 2016), as well as the Wisconsin Chapter of National Band Association convention in 2018.  He has served as director of community bands, is in demand as a clinician and guest conductor, and is a National Board Certified teacher.  Dr. Weise has presented on a variety of music education topics including repertoire selection, young teacher transitions, and chamber music in the classroom at regional and national clinics.
