From Thursday, February 6th to Saturday, February 8th Music & Arts took part in the South Carolina Music Educators Association Convention in North Charleston. Music & Arts sponsered a Workshop for Classroom Guitar Teachers featuring L.H. Dickert and Steve Swanson, held a book signing in the convention hall with Jeff Scott and Emily Wilkinson of the Cario Middle School Band, and offered a "String Showcase" featuring Jessica Embry which was designed to teach new strings directors how to select high quality instruments and accessories for their students. Most of our store staff and all of our South Carolina Education Representatives participated in the three day convention which included a Music & Arts display booth containing a large assortment of the instruments, accessories and print we carry everyday. We also offered a convention special, 30% off print, for every music educator who stopped by. Most of us who were lucky enough to be in attendance were also treated to an incredible performance by the Charleston High School of the Arts Winds Ensemble and Jazz Band. All in all it was a great event and we look forward to next years convention which will be held in Columbia, SC.
