Walker's presentation, Music Matters, focused on music advocacy strategies and pitfalls.

The interactive workshop involved 25 music educators from the district, and was followed by a double bass masterclass with public school children ranging in age and experience. Walker also performed several pieces for the teachers, students, and community members in attendance, including his own composition, Chorale (2012).
