ORGANIZATION POSITIONS AND AFFILIATIONS
Our school is affiliated with several professional organizations in music education.
Donald DeVito is chair of the International Society for Music Education (ISME) commission on community music known as Community Music Activity (CMA). This commission includes innovative music program coordinators from universities, public schools and grant funded programs internationally. Members create music programs and conduct research to assist populations in need. Programs are developed in locations such as prison systems, hospitals, churches, and for senior citizens and children with disabilities. The commission meets every two years the week prior to the main ISME conference and shares their current research and project developments.
Dr. DeVito was selected to the Florida Music Educators Association's research committee and is on the editorial board of Research Perspectives in Music Education. This journal is the organization's publication and includes a variety of innovative research conducted nationally. The link for the journal is available below:
