Welcome to the MacPhail Music Learning Lab, the go-to professional development resource for MacPhail Center for Music faculty members.

On this page you will find a comprehensive list of professional development events.

Our blog, LabReport, features a wide range of MacPhail faculty-generated content, posts by guest bloggers, and excellent content drawn from around the web.

The MacPhail faculty is rich with ideas. Our hope is that every idea worth sharing from every individual and gathering at MacPhail will find its way onto the Learning Lab website.

Come to this session to learn how to create decent looking video without investing time, effort, or money.
