Nicole Davidson, music teacher at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School, was selected to present her research at the New York State School Music Association’s All-State Conference on Dec. 1 in Rochester, New York.

She will present her action research project at the research poster session. The project was completed as a part of her graduate coursework at the Crane School of Music. Her research topic was the examination of the most effective methods to teach beginning instrumental music students how to read musical notation. Through surveying, interviewing and conducting research on best practice of other elementary instrumental music teachers, she developed an action plan to use in her own classroom. 

In addition to the poster presentation at the conference, her abstract will be published in “School Music News,” the New York State magazine for music educators.
