HAYS, KS -- Current and prospective music educators have an opportunity to learn how to create music courses for middle and and junior high school students.
Fort Hays State University's Department of Music is offering Developing and Teaching the Middle School Music Curriculum, a seminar, from July 10-14.
The seminar's focus is developing curriculum, but teaching practices are also emphasized.

Gerber has been honored with the Distinguished Teaching Award in the OSU School of Music and he was selected as the Roy Acuff Chair of Excellence in the Creative Arts at Austin Peay State University. This is a position conferred every fours years to leaders in music in higher education.
Tuition for this two-credit-hour course is $147.50 for a resident undergraduate, $200.90 for a resident graduate, $445.40 for a non-resident undergraduate and $517.70 for a non-resident graduate.
Registration will be July 10 at 8:30 a.m. in Malloy Hall, room 126. The seminar will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
