Individuals are invited to submit proposals for presentation in which they may share new, unpublished research in music education. Submissions are invited for paper presentation, poster presentation or BOTH. Works in progress will be eligible “for discussion only” at the Open Roundtable session. Interested individuals are invited to attend the Symposium whether or not they present. Please direct inquiries about the Symposium to Terese M. Volk Tuohey, Symposium Chair, at ag7658@wayne. edu.
