Thank you to everyone who attended my session at the ACDA National Conference in Salt Lake City!
A special thank-you to those that stayed afterwards to introduce themselves, ask questions, or simply chat. Helping people and getting to meet people is the number one benefit of this non-job! There were a couple of comments that will lead to additional blog posts in the future.

Choral Music in the 21st Century presentation
And you can find the “handout” here:

Just a couple of final notes.
- I was trying to stay in the shallow end of the pool, which may feel “deep” to you. In that case, find one thing to work with.
- Pretty much everything in life follows the “eating the elephant” analogy. Do one thing at a time. If that is scanning music, start with the music you are using. I cannot possibly emphasize how important it is to take baby steps as you start off.
- I didn't get a chance to show off some of my favorite iPad toys. I purposely tried to lessen the content of this presentation, and still ran out of time. Feel free to check out the FAQs that I listed on the last few pages of the presentation (above) that I had avaialble just in case people in the audience didn't have any questions.
- Finally, don't hestiate to contact me! Many people are afraid to ask questions, fearing that they are bothering you. In truth, the questions help me (and similar technology presenters) to know that we are actually helping people and not just blogging into thin air.
Thanks again for coming–and please contact me if you have questions!
