    I work with a youth ensemble on a regular basis, but am not certified in Music Education. May I apply?

    Absolutely! Our hope is that we will have a mix of trained music educators who are in need of artistic rejuvenation, as well as those who are not trained. We encourage applications from individuals who studied one instrument and have found themselves also teaching another instrument or a choir. Similarly, we welcome applications from professional musicians who have found second careers as teachers.

    I have participated in the Music Educators Workshop in the past. Am I still eligible for this program?

    While priority will be given to new teachers, we will welcome returning teachers as space allows.
