When the 2020 MTNA Conference became the 2020 MTNA Virtual Conference, Yamaha provided three all-new showcases, created especially for helping schools and teachers teachers adapt to new normals of distance learning, working from home, and planning for the future. Creative teaching gurus Lori Frazer and Leila Viss join Shana Kirk for some Clavinova tips in Put Your Clavinova to Work. Shana provides an overview of the benefits of Yamaha's Hybrid instruments in an era of working and going to school from home. Lori Frazer also gives a detailed tour of the MLC-200 lab controller, just for all the universities, conservatories, and music academies, who are using closed facilities to re-invision the future of group teaching. Find all these and more at the Yamaha Music Educator Suite's special MTNA Virtual Conference  resources page.
