February 2015 Message from the President
As I'm writing this, TI:ME has just completed two wonderfully successful conferences.  The OMEA/TI:ME regional in Cleveland Ohio and the TMEA/TI:ME national in San Antonio Texas.  A significant part of TI:ME's vision is to help music educators achieve the highest level of teaching possible through the use of music technology.  Conferences like these where teachers receive outstanding training in music technology are excellent vehicles for realizing that goal. In Ohio, TI:ME's first pre-conference at a regional event was held in conjunction with Tri-C, home of the archives of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  Presenters gave roughly twenty-five sessions to those who braved the Ohio winter weather.  Attendees were able to observe a recording session with famed producers Al Schmitt and Tommy LiPuma.

Edited by Tom Rudolph   Twenty years have passed since TI:ME was first conceived at Villanova University in a lunch meeting with John Dunphy (former TI:ME Exec. Director), George Pinchock, and Tom Rudolph (Exec. Committee Chair and former President). “A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” TI:ME took its first step in 1995. John Dunphy recalls the first conversation about TI:ME.   It all happened over a bag lunch in my (John Dunphy’s) office at Villanova University during the summer of 1995. Tom Rudolph, on break from his Technology class, came in followed by George Pinchock, who was the Summer Program coordinator. The group only had a few minutes, but the conversation was about organizing and formalizing

TI:ME Turns 20 in 2015
At the TI:ME/TMEA conference in February, 2015, we will be celebrating TI:ME’s 20th anniversary. It doesn’t seem possible, but 20 years have passed since the idea of TI:ME was first conceived at Villanova University in a lunch meeting with John Dunphy (former TI:ME Exec. Director), George Pinchock, and Tom Rudolph (Exec. Committee Chair and former President). With the help of the late Mike Kovins, Tom Rudolph and John Dunphy traveled to NAMM in 1996 and 1997 and presented a proposal for funding the organization. NAMM did fund the organization and the first official meeting of TI:ME took place in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in 1997. The first TI:ME conference took place in Pennsylvania in 1999. And, the rest, as they say, is history.In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary, there are five special TI:ME at 20 sessions planned for the 2015 TMEA/TI:ME Conference.  These

Commercial Member Spotlight on BEAMZ!
“Bang! Zap!” were the words coming from my students' smiling mouths as they ran their fingers along the lights emitting from the Beamz controller in front of them, interacting with the samples in the application and creating music with just a wave of their hands. Making music by manipulating a beam of light is not an everyday experience for a normal person. Beamz Interactive was started by Arizona songwriter and musician Jerry Riopelle. His vision to play music with light was how the latest midi laser controller from Beamz got made into reality. Being ahead of its time, Jerry waited 5 years for the technology to mature while he worked on the prototype before finally creating the Beamz Interactive company and putting the its first controller into mass production for the public. Since its first production run, Beamz controllers have been in the hands of special education teachers,

Reflections on the TI:ME National Conference
Besides rapidly graying hair and a never-ending stream of administrative responsibilities (sleep is overrated), perhaps one of the biggest drawbacks of serving as department chair is not having as much time to get outside the office and attend as many conferences as a normal faculty member might. Not only do conferences provide an opportunity to step back from the day-to-day tasks, but they also provide a chance for one to learn new concepts and skills, ask questions and share ideas, and discover new and interesting resources. In a nutshell, conferences are a “recharge.” Prior to starting as chair, I attended two “recharging opportunities,” one in the fall and one in the spring. Each fall I attended the Association for Technology in Music Instruction (ATMI) conference and, most springs, the Technology Institute for Music Educators (TI:ME). Due to my chair responsibilities, it
