UNO professor named Nebraska Music Teacher of the Year

Music theory professor Ken Bales is currently over 6,000 miles away on a trip to China with the UNO Jazz Ensemble. On the trip, Bales is discussing and discovering with students the concepts of art and music.

Though he's visiting a country with a very different culture, Bales is content. After all, there he can find music and his students, the two most meaningful things in his life.
