Music Educators Workshop
Summer Program

K–12 educators from across the country convene in New York City each summer to expand the impact and breadth of their work with young musicians. Two distinct one-week workshops focus on how shifts in day-to-day teaching practices can reinvigorate students’ creativity and musicianship. Music educators also invest in their own artistry through creative activities and music-making in ensembles.

Early Registration: $75 per session before April 30

Session 1

You Are What You Play

July 11-14, 2018

Learn how to open your students’ minds and hearts to the power of artful, rich, and engaging repertoire, exploring the questions:

Dare to Create

What is the full schedule of workshops?

A tentative list of dates, workshop topics, and guest faculty can be found on our program details page. We will keep this up to date as we confirm additional details.

I work with a youth ensemble on a regular basis, but am not certified in music education. May I register?

Absolutely! Our hope is that we will have a mix of trained music educators who are in search of artistic rejuvenation, as well as performers and teaching artists in search of growth as educators. We encourage participation from choral educators who have found themselves teaching instrumental ensembles, as well as instrumental educators who have found themselves teaching choral ensembles. Similarly, we welcome registration from professional performers 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 participants, we will welcome returning teachers as space allows.
