We missed seeing everyone at the NJMEA conference in February – because there wasn’t one! We did see many of


you, as well as colleagues from other eastern states, at the Eastern NAfME Conference in Atlantic City in April. We all had a wonderful time! We do have a general membership meeting this year as well, on Wednesday, May 10th at 10:15 a.m. The place has not been determined yet, but if you are interested in attending, please contact me either by email or phone and I will get you details. We would like to plan some activities to get together and share some fun and reminiscing. Please check your spring newsletter and let me know if you are interested! We would love to see you!


Special Learners Maureen Butler

As the school year draws to a close, it’s a good time to look back and consider how we’ve met the needs of our special learners. If you are looking for more information about how to include them in your music class, the annual Summer Session at TCNJ on August 1st is a good place to start. This year’s presenters, including Lucia Marone, Brian Wagner (see his wonderful article in this issue) and myself, will focus on the following topics: Behavior Management for Special Learners, Teaching Music to Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Multi-sensory Learning Approach: Reach- ing All Learners in K – 5th grades, and Making Connections: Using Repertoire to Enhance the Social-Emotional Needs of Students with Special Needs. Our presenters have had considerable experience teaching students with disabilities, and you may find answers to many of your questions, as well as good ideas to bring back to school in September. As always, if you have questions or concerns about the students you teach, or topics you want to see addressed in TEMPO please contact me at the above email address.
