Audio Education Virtual Mini-Conference

Thursday, July 23, 2020 11am-2:30pm ET

Current global conditions make it impossible for the Audio Education Conference to proceed as planned this summer.  Therefore, the full three-day conference in Tennessee will be delayed by one year.  Though we must wait to meet again in person, the program of workshops, papers and special events in 2021 will be stronger and more relevant than ever.

Meanwhile, we are hosting the AES Audio Education Virtual Mini Conference – a FREE online symposium with a series of presentations about the pedagogy and delivery of audio and music technology.
