I understand that a new edition of the music code is soon to be available. Are the changes extensive? Will there be information on integrating UEB and the music code? I am a certified music transcriber, reviewing and updating my skills after being away from it for a while.
Yes, there is a newly revised and updated music code that BANA recently approved. The changes are not extensive but it is certainly encouraged that you familiarize yourself with the changes that were made. There is a publication currently available in the NBA online store entitled "Music and UEB" that covers the changes made specifically to that area of the code. The Fall 2016 Professional Development Conference in St. Louis will have a workshop dedicated solely to the 40+ updates to the Music Code, as well as a workshop on integrating UEB in Music Textbooks.
