Blogs from YES Academy Faculty

A few of the YES Academy are keeping blogs on their travels.

My roommate Dr. Patrick David Clark is writing for the Mizzou New Music Initiative on teaching composition in Iraq.  He is teaching them theories of Western composition as a means to get them writing new compositions of Western, Kurdish and Arabic music.

Meanwhile, Dr. Bradley Bolen of Baylor University is blogging on teaching piano and his other Middle Eastern adventures.  He is a YES Academy veteran, and has some great entries including a poignant called "A Stroll in the Park."
