The Music Educators Toolbox is a collection of free, open-source learning resources and assessment tools created for classroom use by music teachers and Carnegie Hall teaching artists. Developed after an in-depth, five-year partnership between Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute and PS/MS 161 in upper Manhattan, the resources are designed to be adaptable for use in a variety of music classroom settings. The Toolbox currently features grade-specific music education resources addressing fundamentals of Rhythm, Meter, Form and Design, Expressive Qualities, Pitch, and Performing.
The Music Educators Toolbox was developed in partnership with PS/MS 161 in upper Manhattan. Major funding in support of this partnership was provided by The Irene Diamond Fund. Additional support was provided by the Lanie & Ethel Foundation.
An ongoing project, the Music Educators Toolbox will continue to expand in the following content areas: resources for grades 6–12, resources for ensemble directors, and resources for administrators.
