Two music students from the University of Arkansas have been chosen for the Technology Institute for Music Educators Music Technology Leadership Academy. 

The students, Gustavo Samudio and Donna Vickers, will be part of approximately 15 students who are given the opportunity to participate in the event being held from Feb. 1-4 in Cleveland.

During the TI:ME National Conference, the students will attend multiple sessions and will learn how to draw in non-tradition music students through the use of music technology. The students will spend the four days studying how to create and employ certain instructional methods for educating secondary schools which have not been involved in the traditional category of music groups and ensembles. The focus and approach to this program has been in step with the musiccreativity.org website.

Over the years, students have been selected from Arizona State University, University of Massachussetts at Amherst, New York University, Ithaca College and the University of Cincinnati.

Samudio, who is from Panama, is a junior with a music education major. Vickers, who is from New York, is a senior with a music education major.  Both Samudio and Vickers will be meeting with other students who have been chosen for the program.
