MacArthur High School Band Director Joseph Romano recently was selected to serve as a clinician at the 2016 Balanced Mind Arts Education Conference, held at Molloy College in Rockville Center. Art and music teachers from across the state were invited to attend the conference.
Romano presented a two-part session titled “Essentials of Ensemble Performance,” which focused on important concepts for improving the performance quality of school instrumental ensembles.
“It was a real pleasure to lead a discussion amongst professionals,” Romano said. “I was happy to impart some ideas that work in my program and also learn things from some of the talented educators who attended the sessions.”
In addition to his teaching in Levittown, Romano was an adjunct professor at Hofstra University, teaching a course in instrumental music education for college undergraduate and graduate music majors.
