m-pact brings years of professional experience in the entertainment industry to the class room. With six college careers dedicated to music and music education, m-pact teaches at summer camps and adjudicates vocal jazz and choral festivals around the world. Sharing a natural affinity for inspiring others, m-pact has been a hit headliner of jazz festivals and music educator conventions, such as IAJE/JEN, MENC, ACDA, and many state Music Educator Association conferences. m-pact offers artist-in-residency programs for school or community choral directors and their ensembles. There are currently four components to m-pact’s curriculum:
A “meet-&-greet the artist” forum, blending brief performance, general history, and individual introductions into a Q-&-A session about m-pact’s music and experience; master classes raise overall community/school music appreciation while energizing choral program participation and increasing membership.
Personalized, detail-oriented instruction and hands-on adjudication of host group repertoire and current musical projects in preparation for events and festivals. Typically these events are focused on working with and encouraging the host group, so m-pact's singing will be minimal and only for the purpose of demonstration.
Selected instructional performances and follow-up discussions designed to target musical and/or non-musical topics needed by and appropriate for your school or community group:
Style & interpretation
Studio recording & production
Music industry / career
And many others…
m-pact’s artist-in-residency programs involve any or all of these components and duration may range from single-day appearances to an intensive, weeklong “music-camp-on-wheels,” all of which are tailor made for host group or school educational needs.
