Music Education Lightning Talks featuring Jessica L. G. Steuver and Andy Novak

The Department of Music will host two Music Education Lightning Talks with Jessica L. G. Steuver and Andy Novak Friday, Dec. 1, from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Harkness Chapel.

Jessica L. G. Steuver, she/her, is a PhD Choral Music Education Student at CWRU. Her Lightning Talk will explore the process of creating a multi-tiered assessment plan for non-auditioned ensembles, which often contain a plethora of skill and experience levels. This program was piloted last semester with CWRU’s University Chorale, the non-auditioned treble choir conducted by Jessica.

Andy Novak is in his third year as a part time MA student at CWRU. He is a vocal music teacher for Bay Village City Schools. For his lighting talk, Andy will be discussing sight-singing assessment strategies for middle school and high school choirs.
