The Music Educators Workshop is a community of ensemble directors who come together to learn from each other and from top-notch guest faculty, to attend concerts at Carnegie Hall, and to explore their important role as instigators of creativity and musicality. Teachers investigate several core strategies for teaching music skills, learn about choosing the best repertoire for their ensemble, discuss how to program inspiring and successful concerts, develop creative composition and improvisation activities for their classrooms, and observe visiting faculty working with student ensembles. The Music Educators Workshop is open to school and community ensemble directors working with middle or high school-aged ensembles. Carnegie Hall offers a school year program for educators in the New York City area, and a summer program for music educators who are able to come to New York for four days of workshop intensives.
Lead support for Music Educators Workshop is provided by the Brooke Astor One-Year Fund for New York City Education.
