Public Relations and Music Education Work Hand-in-Hand

  • thumbnail for John J. Gallagher
  • The focus of this session is to introduce public relations and publicity techniques to the arts educator. It will guide them toward successful relationships with today’s media outlets and to establish a foundation in writing for them. Further, it will enable them to take advantage of media opportunities to promote concerts, festivals, award ceremonies, art exhibits and the like.
