Fifty-seventh Annual Conference

November 2-4, 2017
Winthrop University – Rock Hill, SC


The members and board of the South Carolina Music Teachers Association are grateful for the success of last week’s SCMTA Annual Conference and MTNA State Competitions hosted by Winthrop University. We owe our sincerest gratitude to Vice President for Conferences, Lannia Bronola-Dickert!

Clinician Diane Hidy gave us practical insight for teaching to the individual needs of students. Anton Nel was superb in both his teaching and in his wonderful Friday evening performance. We gleaned much from the student presentation on performance anxiety, the multitude of current studies represented in the poster session, and from the member presentation by Derek Parsons and Caroline Owen. Congratulations to you all!

Many thanks to those who contributed to this fabulous conference: Matthew Manwarren, Donald Rogers, Kathy Nungesser, Janice Flinte, Robin Zemp, Scott Price, Nanette Baltz and the Upper Palmetto MTA, Peter Davis, Julie Carrier, and Lorri Turcios.
