Dr. Jetton, assistant professor of music education at DePauw, will preside over a session at 1 p.m. Saturday, January 19 entitled "Starting from Scratch: Making the Most of a Small Music Program," which will feature discussions on finding resources on a limited budget, recruiting, sharing students within programs, and working with unusual instrumentation or voicing within an ensemble.

At 2:30 that same afternoon, Dr. Paré will chair a panel discussion on "Literature for Beginning Ensembles", which will focus on choosing core repertoire, material and pedagogies for beginning band, choral, jazz and string groups. Paré is director of University Bands, and associate professor of music at DePauw.
