How does this program connect with the professional development programs offered by the New York City Department of Education?
This program has been created in consultation with the New York City Department of Education and supplements the annual Professional Development Series offered by the Office of Arts and Special Projects.
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 in need of artistic rejuvenation, as well as those working in the field with less formal training. We encourage applications from individuals who studied one instrument but find themselves 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 we give priority to new teachers, we welcome returning teachers as space allows.
Is the Music Educators Workshop only available for ensemble directors?
No. This year we are inviting K–5 music educators to apply for the program as well, expanding to include all K–12 music educators working in school or community settings regardless of their experience directing ensembles.
