2019 Trying on Teaching

We believe that the best way to train music teachers is to provide authentic teaching opportunities while engaging in a community of reflective practitioners. Additionally, we believe in creating a space for the discussion and application of many contemporary approaches relevant to music education while remaining informed by the excellent traditions that have made music education strong in America over the last two centuries. As community of passionate, well-prepared teachers, this opportunity serves to grow the next generation of great music educators to serve students in our public schools.
