Melissa Colgin Abeln
Professor, Music

The expertise of Dr. Colgin Abeln focuses on preparing musicians and music educators for 21st-century challenges. Beyond professional preparation, she works with students to develop smart use of technology as it can enhance but not replace music teaching and performance. Dr. Colgin Abeln uses a system of mapping music for secure learning and memorization. This approach works especially well for differently abled learners. Having learned to overcome a personal struggle with dyslexia, she is committed to the dissemination of this method as she learns more about recent brain research that applies to memory and motor skills.
