James Eldreth, music education Ph.D. student leading workshop in China
Music education Ph.D. candidate, James Eldreth, has been in high demand recently for his work with jazz pedagogy in the elementary general music setting. In the summer of 2018, he presented his session three times at a music teacher conference in Nanjing, China, reaching over 150 music teachers in one day. He then applied his work in a classroom with elementary students in Changchun, China, while teachers who attended his session the week before observed the process. 
Over the course of the 2018-2019 academic year, James has presented his session at the Music Educators Association conferences in Virginia, Wyoming, Connecticut, and New Hampshire, with a presentation in Maine still to come next month.
