Celine & Me: My 6:40 appeal to music educators

The video above is footage from my July 22nd presentation at the seventh PeckaKucha evening in Champaign-Urbana (organized by CUDO - the Champaign-Urbana Design Organization). My topic was a favorite one of mine: musical tastes, Celine Dion, and the future of music education. 

If you like this blog (or my other online venture, Leading Notes), then I hope I can convince you to spend 6:40 with me. I promise that it’s not super boring. There were definitely some laughs!

For those who don’t know what PechaKucha is, I stole this from the CUDO PeckaKucha page:

PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of conversation (“chit chat”), it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds each. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

Basically, it forces the presenters to make their points quickly and move on. I think most PeckaKucha nights have entertainment before and after, too (we had a DJ). It was a really fun evening and I would encourage you to find one near you! Go HERE to find one.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy. As always, leave our comments and share with others. This new blog layout is a bit funky (I’m working on it), but to tweet or post to Facebook, you have to click the “Share” button up top. I would be appreciative if you helped spread the word.
